The National Academy of Medicine Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience yesterday hosted a meeting to identify opportunities to advance clinician well-being based on consensus recommendations released by NAM in October. The consensus study, requested by the collaborative and supported by AHA, calls for promoting positive work and learning environments; reducing administrative burden; making health information technology easier to use; reducing the stigma associated with seeking help; and addressing gaps in research on clinician well-being. At the meeting, Jay Bhatt D.O., AHA senior vice president and chief medical officer, provided reaction to the recommendations and shared examples of how hospitals and health systems are creating an infrastructure and sustainable culture for clinician well-being. For specific examples, see the AHA Physician Alliance’s Well-being Playbook. AHA is an inaugural sponsoring member of the collaborative, launched in 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.
