Why resilience matters now more than ever

Prioritizing the need to address physician well-being and enhance patient safety.

How have systems prepared for crisis situations to ensure support and care for physicians and other health care workers?

The dedication of leadership at ChristianaCare in Delaware and Maryland enabled the health system to build a robust well-being infrastructure that as that has helped to rapidly pivot and scale up available support resources to meet the needs of physicians during a crisis.
