Burnout & Resiliency

IPA recognizes that a healthy and thriving clinician workforce is imperative to ensuring optimal patient health outcomes and safety. IPA hopes to create and support a culture of well-being by providing resources for our members. 

Recently, IPA Board of Trustees adopted the issue of clinician well-being and burnout as a primary goal of IPA’s strategic plan. As IPA continues its mission to empower the pharmacy profession to improve health outcomes, we recognize this important issue and hope our members will find these resources helpful in addressing this important issue within our profession.
