POSNA Wellness Charter

POSNA Wellness Initiative

POSNA recognizes the vital importance of physician/practitioner wellness among its membership and as a foundational principle for workplace culture. Developing and sustaining a career in pediatric orthopaedics is rigorous and demanding. Practitioners are at risk for depression and burnout and we need strategies to combat this.

  3. Organizational (Society) leadership: POSNA will provide knowledge, tools, and skills to empower its members to be agents of culture change in their own health care organizations.
