Abstract

Stressful working conditions in health care put the well-being of healthcare professionals at risk. This well-being is increasingly being supported by diverse initiatives in the Netherlands. However, these initiatives are dispersed across micro-, meso- and macro-levels and not equally accessible to all health care professionals. A national, integral approach is lacking in which initiatives across levels are more effectively combined. Therefore, we suggest the initiation of a national program "Caring for Healthcare Professionals", which structurally supports the well-being of healthcare professionals. We reflect on science- and practice-based insights from interventions in three domains: (a) workplace management, (b) self-care, and (c) treatment and recovery. We propose to translate the lessons learned in these domains into a national program combining best practices, aiming to structurally support healthcare professionals' well-being.
