The National Academy of Medicine’s (NAM) Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience (Clinician Well-Being Collaborative) hosted a virtual convening on Clinician Retention in the Era of COVID: Uniting the Health Workforce to Optimize Well-Being on March 15, from 12-4:30 PM EST. Now watch on-demand:

In response to the acute challenges and staffing shortages of COVID-19, the Clinician Well-Being Collaborative assembled industry leaders, C-Suite members, and frontline health care workers to unite in our journey to share perspectives on challenges and barriers, pinpoint solutions, and discuss actionable strategies to mitigate burnout and strengthen the health care workforce.

The free public meeting highlighted:

Individual-level stressors in the context of COVID-19
Institutional-level challenges and opportunities to support workforce well-being
National-level levers for improving workforce well-being, the pipeline of health workers, and stemming the shortage

The meeting also featured journeys of Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, LCMC Health in Louisiana, and Montefiore Medical Center in New York to create wellness action plans for and with their frontline staff, with the intention to encourage other health-serving institutions to begin or continue their journeys.
