This value calls for supporting staff, physicians and leadership to help make the work experience an integral part of a meaningful life. It recognizes that health care providers have a tremendous stake in the experience of health care. Health care providers often spend more time with colleagues than families and derive much self-worth from their vocations. Conversely, because of the intimate nature of working in health care teams to serve vulnerable populations, they also have the potential to do much harm to colleagues and patients and to be harmed by professional experiences. Many are also reliant on employers for their livelihoods and are vulnerable as a result. This value indicates it is important for the needs of the care giving community to be attended to by the organization.
