Introduction: This article represents the first of a two-part assessment of 2022 literature addressing wellness in healthcare professionals published from January 1, 2022 to June 30, 2022.
Methods: Three editors conducted a similar keyword search in Pubmed, also adding manually curated articles. Focusing chiefly on clinical trials and other prospective research, we settled on a final 25 significant papers focusing on wellness in medical professionals to include in this review.
Literature Review: Recent literature into HCW wellness continues to describe burnout factors and COVID-19 impact, but includes more resilience-targeting interventions and systematic reviews of trials seeking bolstering of well-being. Subsections of this review include: Mindfulness, Well-being among surgeons, coaching, night shift, COVID-19, students, general burnout, and a few review articles.
Conclusion: JWell editors continue to be excited about trends focusing on thriving and positive wellness aspects, rather than furthering the imbalance of heavily negative tone related to burnout and stress.
