To ensure high-quality patient care and build a more effective health system, we depend on a healthy, productive, and engaged clinician workforce. But, increasingly, U.S. health care providers are burned out. Our nation stands at a critical crossroads. Health care spending is at an all-time high, yet Americans are less healthy than peers in other high-income nations. The population is aging rapidly, and rates of chronic disease, obesity, and drug addiction are skyrocketing. We cannot reverse these trends without engaged and effective clinicians working in systems and cultures that support their career satisfaction and well-being. This public meeting will provide an opportunity for the public to actively engage with the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience and will feature expert panels on issues related to clinician burnout, resilience, and solutions to promote well-being.  A public agenda will be posted in early 2019 and registration will open in spring 2019. Please join our mailing list for updates. #ClinicianWellBeing    

The Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience will host a closed working meeting on October 4-5, 2018 in Washington, DC. This meeting is closed to the public. The next public meeting will be held in May 2019 in Chicago, IL.  Visit the Clinician Well-Being Knowledge Hub for resources that can help health system administrators and clinicians build a better system that helps clinicians thrive>>  

This is the first meeting of the Committee on Systems Approaches to Improve Patient Care by Supporting Clinician Well-Being. The committee will examine components of the clinical training and work environment that can contribute to clinician burnout in a variety of care settings, as well as potential systems interventions to mitigate those outcomes.
