Provider Resilience App

So this is fascinating: the nice folks at the National Center for Telehealth and Technology, one of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury, created a mobile app to help gauge and improve clinician resilience (aka: avoid burnout).  I don’t know how effective it is, but I downloaded it to my iPhone today (it’s free) and will play with it this evening.

If nothing else, you have to appreciate the vacation tracker. I confess I’m not crazy about everything contained in this app (hello, Value Cards), but it does provide a great opportunity to have a conversation with colleagues about self-care. It’s meant for military providers, but could apply to folks in the civilian sector just as well.
