S4 E 10. In this second episode recorded after the inaugural Beamtree / Health Round Table Organisational Response to Workforce Wellbeing summit #ORW23, I am delighted to introduce Fiona Fitzgerald Workforce Wellbeing Knowledge Network lead for Beamtree, the service partner for Health Round Table.
Fiona is a registered nurse by background with nearly 30 years of experience in healthcare, including 12 years working in the health informatics space with a focus on delivering IT solutions that improve patient outcomes and healthcare workflows.
Fiona is passionate about improving the wellbeing of the healthcare workforce. In 2018 she began to journey to bring the Well-Being Index developed by Mayo Clinic to the Australia and New Zealand healthcare workforce with the support of Health Round Table. She believes that wellbeing is a shared responsibility and through collaboration, curiosity, kindness and leadership the tide of burnout can be turned. Fiona has been an instrumental driving force behind #ORS23.
In this conversation we visit Fiona's professional and personal journey and mission. Fiona discusses Australia and New Zealand role out of the Well-being index tool to date including the successes, challenges and future opportunities for organisations, teams and individuals in healthcare in leading and co-creating a thriving healthcare workforce alongside high quality, safe patient care.
