NAM Supports Clinician Well-Being during COVID-19 Outbreak

In the face of the unprecedented challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying global public health emergency, the National Academy of Medicine’s Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience is supporting the health care and public health community as they navigate the difficult challenges arising in this unprecedented moment. Many clinicians already face anxiety, burnout, depression, stress, and suicide; the COVID-19 crisis is presenting an even greater hardship that can exacerbate existing levels of burnout and mental health stressors. The collaborative has compiled a list of strategies and resources to support the health and well-being of clinicians providing health care during the COVID-19 outbreak.
