Joint AJN/OVID webinar: In the Aftermath of COVID-19: Helping Clinicians in Crisis
Date: Tuesday, July 14th
Time: 2:00-3:00 ET
Audience: all schools, government, and healthcare systems that support clinicians
Description: Last October, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) released a report (see screenshot above) on the pervasiveness of burnout among nurses and physicians. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has greatly heightened the distress our clinicians are experiencing and accelerated the need to address the mental and emotional health of these caregivers. These presenters, both of whom were members of the NAM Consensus Study Committee on System Approaches to Improve Patient Care by Supporting Clinician Wellbeing, will identify how individuals and health care systems can reduce burnout and improve clinician wellbeing, particularly within a pandemic.
Panelists: Both panelists were members of the NAM Consensus Study Committee
