Clinician Well-Being and Resilience - First Public Meeting for New NAM Initiative

To ensure high-quality patient care and build a more effective health system, we depend on a healthy, productive, and engaged clinician workforce. But, increasingly, U.S. health care providers are burned out. 

On July 14 the National Academy of Medicine will host its first public meeting of the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, which aims to support and improve clinician well-being and resilience across multiple organizations, including clinician and consumer groups, health care organizations and policymaking bodies.  The meeting will allow the public and invited experts to provide feedback on the direction of the collaborative, as well as highlight research and examples of promising approaches to promoting well-being.

The public meeting will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT on Friday, July 14, in the Fred Kavli Auditorium of the National Academy of Sciences building, 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C.  Register to attend in-person or via live webcast.  To learn more, please visit nam.edu/ClinicianWellBeing.  The agenda for the public meeting is available here.
