This article by Dr. Ronald Epstein and Dr. Michael Krasner discusses physician resilience and how it’s key to enhancing quality of care and the sustainability of the health care workforce. Resilience is the capacity to respond to stress in a healthy way so goals can be achieved at minimal psychological and physical cost. Resilient individuals “bounce back” after challenges while also growing stronger. While ways of identifying and promoting resilience have been elusive, the authors explain how it depends on individual, community and institutional factors.
