Join the National Academy of Medicine’s Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience for a webinar on Supporting Clinician Well-Being During COVID-19 on Thursday, May 7th from 1:30 PM-3:00 PM ET.  To REGISTER

This webinar will provide a timely discussion and platform for physicians, nurses, students, and health system leaders to delve into the critical needs, priorities, and emerging strategies to support the mental and emotional well-being of clinicians on the frontlines—both during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. This webinar is open to the public and will be recorded.

The objectives of this webinar are to: 

  • Describe the existing clinician burnout crisis prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and the goals of the NAM Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience.
  • Identify the critical needs and priorities to support the well-being of clinicians, including those in their formative years of training, during the COVID-19 era.
  • Spotlight programs, resources, and leadership efforts currently underway to address and monitor the acute and long-term mental health and well-being of clinicians on the frontlines of COVID-19.
  • Voice the need for a coordinated, national strategy to care for the acute and long-term health and well-being of frontline clinicians delivering health care during this public health crisis.

Panelists will share insights from providing health care on the frontlines of COVID-19, reflect on the unique challenges clinicians are facing during this crisis, and elevate the need for a national strategy to care for their acute and long-term mental and emotional well-being.

During the Q&A session, you can submit questions for the panelists. You will also have the opportunity to submit questions ahead of the virtual event when you register.
