New Quiz Time module provides resources for clinician well-being

A new Quiz Time module at Vanderbilt, “Elevating with Support: A Toolkit for Clinicians at VUMC,” is focused on clinician well-being.


The Vanderbilt Faculty and Physician Wellness Program (FPWP) has launched launch a new Quiz Time module, “Elevating with Support: A Toolkit for Clinicians at VUMC,” focused on clinician well-being.

“The new module will equip our clinicians to utilize resources to support psychological well-being such as counseling, peer support and coaching available through the Faculty and Physician Wellness Program (FPWP), a program of Work/Life Connections-EAP,” said Mary Yarbrough, MD, MPH, executive director of Vanderbilt Health and Wellness. “The previous module, When Clinicians Struggle: Finding Support at VUMC, focused on mental health conditions commonly experienced by clinicians.”

The learning module went live on March 28. For complete details and to register, visit Elevating with Support: A Toolkit for Clinicians at VUMC.

“The Elevating with Support toolkit is a follow-up Quiz Time module designed to help VUMC faculty, physicians, APRN’s, PAs and other credentialed clinicians feel empowered to care for their own well-being,” said Beth Ann Yakes, MD, associate director of VWell Physician Support. “It can be challenging for clinicians to recognize wellness needs in themselves and colleagues, and when recognized, they may be uncertain how to access resources available through the FPWP.”

The FPWP at VUMC offers robust services to VUMC clinicians that include counseling, coaching, assessment and treatment plans.

By ensuring that clinicians know how to find, explain and utilize the resources available through the FPWP program, individuals at VUMC will be empowered to provide peer-support to their colleagues in need.

Elective participation in Quiz Time is available to all credentialed clinicians at VUMC, and CME credit is available for applicable learners who engage in at least 80% of the questions. When participants sign up to be a part of this module, they may choose whether these daily questions will be delivered via email or via text message.

Recognizing the time constraints of practicing faculty and clinicians, Quiz Time provides just-in-time learning by delivering daily quiz-items to your email or mobile device.  Learners can choose the most optimal and convenient time to engage with the material to be learned. Immediate feedback on the multiple-choice question as well as accompanying rationales, implications for practice, and references will equip participants with the knowledge they need to help sustain their own personal well-being.
