Building on 6 years of collaboration among a network of 200+ organizations, a related 2019 NAM report, and the May 2022 Surgeon General’s Advisory, as well as nearly 2,000 comments received during a public input opportunity, the Clinician Well-Being Collaborative will soon publish its National Plan for Health Workforce Well-Being. The imminent launch of the Plan will provide guidance and next steps to work with leaders in health care and public health, government, payers, health IT, education, professional societies, and others involved to cultivate a health system to better support our care providers and optimize their well-being.

This event will give an overview of the Plan, describe its urgent application to the current state of the health workforce, and share commitments to continue building momentum for the health workforce well-being movement.
