Clinician burnout can have serious, wide-ranging consequences, from reduced job performance and high turnover rates to—in the most extreme cases—medical error and clinician suicide. On the other hand, clinician well-being supports improved patient-clinician relationships, a high-functioning care team, and an engaged and effective workforce. In other words, when we invest in the well-being of clinicians—doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, medical trainees, and more—everyone wins.
The National Academy of Medicine (NAM), a nonprofit research organization in Washington, DC, called on artists of all skills and abilities to express what clinician burnout and clinician resilience/well-being looks, sounds, and feels like to them. The purpose of Expressions of Clinician Well-Being is to promote greater awareness and understanding of barriers to clinician well-being—and solutions that promise a brighter future.
This project is a part of the NAM’s Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, which is committed to reversing trends in clinician burnout by improving baseline understanding of the challenges to clinician well-being, raising the visibility of clinician stress and burnout, and elevating evidence-based, multidisciplinary solutions that will improve patient care by caring for the caregiver.
