Prioritizing clinician well-being is essential to sustaining a skilled palliative care workforce. Burnout and other threats to well-being are widespread and must be addressed through initiatives at both the individual/team and system levels. There are a variety of evidence-based practices to improve well-being in palliative care. Palliative care clinicians can lead important efforts to drive lasting culture change to promote well-being in the health care system. This chapter provides an overview of clinician well-being, evidence-based approaches to supporting well-being in palliative care, and strategies to drive organizational change in enhancing the well-being of palliative care teams.
