A key organizational strategy to improving clinician well-being is to measure it, develop and implement interventions, and then re-measure it. A variety of dimensions of clinician well-being can be measured including burnout, engagement, and professional satisfaction. Developed by the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, the following is a summary of valid and reliable survey instruments that can be used to measure individual burnout, depression, and well-being. This list includes information about each measurement tool including its purpose, format, release date, cost, links to outcomes, and how it was developed. Each tool has advantages and disadvantages and some are more appropriate for specific populations or settings.
