The National Academy of Medicine today launched Resource Compendium for Health Care Worker Well-Being, which highlights tools that are ready to be deployed and strategies to address systems issues related to health care workers’ burnout. The compendium, which is a product of the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, of which AHA is a participant, organizes resources into six essential elements: advancing organizational commitment; strengthening leadership behaviors; conducting workplace assessments; examining policies and practices; enhancing workplace efficiency; and cultivating a culture of connection and support.  
 
“Stress, trauma and burnout among front-line health care workers are at historic levels as we head into the third year of the pandemic,” said AONL CEO Robyn Begley, DNP, R.N., who serves on the collaborative’s steering committee alongside AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “Health care is, at its core, people caring for people. NAM’s detailed plans and actionable resources will help support well-being and resiliency of caregivers who continue to make sacrifices for all of us.”
