What began as novel research into managing Stress and Error in commercial aviation in the early 1990s was expanded to medicine in 1996. We have developed and validated metrics and interventions for improving workforce well-being, safety culture, teamwork and leadership. In 2009 we prioritized the concept of bite-sized well-being metrics and interventions for a busy and exhausted workforce.  Using a combination of compassion for the weary and methodological rigor for the science, our metrics and interventions have withstood the tests of time and replicability of findings. Today we continue to refine and expand well-being resources, programs, interventions and metrics, while building the next generation of scholars and practitioners. By using and sharing our resources, you too can join the CAWS!

Mission: to validate and promote evidence-based well-being resources and strategies.
