The National Academy of Medicine Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience yesterday held its second public meeting on establishing clinician well-being as a national priority. Participants shared promising strategies to enhance human connection and a sense of community in the workplace; use art and the humanities to promote healing; foster a diverse, inclusive and connected environment; and redesign work flow to enhance joy in practice, streamline documentation and increase team-based care. During a panel discussion on redesigning work flow, AHA Chief Medical Officer Jay Bhatt, D.O., described how AHA is working with hospitals to create the social connections and systems to make it easy for clinicians to ask for help, reduce administrative burden that doesn’t add to patient care, and strengthen the relationship between clinicians and administrators through training experiences and other leadership approaches. AHA is an inaugural sponsoring member of the collaborative, launched in December 2016 to provide a platform for professional and educational organizations to advance evidence-based solutions for resilience and well-being in the face of clinician burnout, depression and suicide. The collaborative recently launched an online repository of resources to help health system leaders, clinicians and trainees. AHA’s Physician Alliance also offers extensive resources to help member hospitals and health systems promote clinician resilience and well-being.
