The National Academy of Medicine launched the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, a network of more than 60 organizations committed to reversing trends in clinician burnout. The Collaborative has three goals:

  1. Improve baseline understanding of challenges to clinician well-being;
  2. Raise the visibility of clinician stress and burnout; and
  3. Elevate evidence-based, multidisciplinary solutions that will improve patient care by caring for the caregiver. 

The Action Collaborative is composed of five working groups that will identify evidence-based strategies to improve clinician well-being at both the individual and systems levels. Products and activities of these five working groups include an online knowledge hub, a series of NAM perspectives discussion papers, an all-encompassing conceptual model that reflects the domains affecting clinician well-being, and a common set of definitions. The five working groups are:

  1. Research, Data, and Metrics
  2. Conceptual Model
  3. External Factors and Workflow
  4. Messaging and Communication
  5. Publications and Art Show
