The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has named a committee to study and report on the scientific evidence regarding the causes of clinician burnout, the consequences for clinicians and patients, and interventions to support clinician well-being and resilience. The National Academy of Medicine Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, whose sponsors include the AHA, last year issued a discussion paper calling for research to identify the organizational and health system factors that place physicians, nurses and other health care professionals at increased risk for burnout; the implications for health care outcomes; and effective interventions to improve clinician well-being. The NAM Collaborative and AHA Physician Alliance both offer resources to help hospitals and health systems promote clinician resilience and well-being.
