The National Academy of Medicine (NAM), along with more than 20 professional and educational organizations, recently launched an action collaborative to promote wellness and resilience among healthcare workers. The collaborative will begin its work next month and will hold public workshops and meetings throughout 2017 to identify and discuss the causes of burnout and find evidence-based solutions to address stress and suicide among clinicians.

In a statement, NAM President Victor J. Dzau, who is also chair of the initiative, said, “It’s disturbing that so many clinicians are stressed out and overwhelmed, but even more so when we consider the impact on patients and society … Addressing this problem will require individual, organizational, and systems-level reform. The NAM is committed to leading this collaborative effort in finding workable solutions that will ultimately benefit us all.”
