LIGHT Provider Well-Being Program
Careers in health care can be immensely rewarding. Because of the importance of the work, it can also be stressful. That’s why we offer our innovative LIGHT program to all physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners across the Avera system.
This professional program provides the support, tools and coaching needed to help reduce stress, optimize workflow, improve work-life balance and prevent burnout. Even if providers don’t feel overwhelmed by burnout, we encourage them to take advantage of the LIGHT Program, with the goal of experiencing wellness in every aspect of life.
LIGHT built its strategy on three pillars:
- Culture of Wellness
- Efficiency of Practice
- Personal Resilience
This strategy includes policies and procedures which create a culture of well-being, strategies for a more efficient practice and support for personal growth and professional development.
Enhance Your Quality of Life
The LIGHT Program is a nationally recognized well-being program that offers providers free and confidential access to resources that enhance their quality of life at work and at home.
LIGHT Strategies for Well-Being
The LIGHT Program reflects Avera’s mission to care for the whole self – body, mind and spirit. Providers can take advantage of unique strategies to meet their specific needs. LIGHT developed a proactive strategy of continuous improvement designed to cultivate well-being and enhance prevention at both the personal and system level – before burnout becomes an issue.
