At this crucial turning point for health care in the U.S., the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) has launched a Resource Compendium for Health Care Worker Well-Being: a collection designed to highlight tools that are ready to be deployed and strategies to address systems issues related to health care worker burnout.
It is evident that COVID-19 has further strained the health care workforce and health care system like never before. If you are a health care worker or leader taking on the challenge of providing much-needed support to caregivers, the compendium has well-being resources to help you along your journey.
See the compendium for resources organized into six essential elements:
Advancing organizational commitment
Strengthening leadership behaviors
Conducting workplace assessments
Examining policies and practices
Enhancing workplace efficiency
Cultivating a culture of connection and support.
You can directly access the area you are most interested in, or view the complete curated list with brief resource summaries.
We believe that through continued, collective actions over the coming months, we can reimagine a system that enhances our ability to care for our caregivers as they do for us every day. Thank you for your commitment to systematically take action to improve health care worker well-being and ultimately patient care.
The compendium is a product of the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, of which the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) is a network organization.
