Clinician Well-Being as a National Priority

While physician burnout has been called a “silent-epidemic,” the repercussions – including suicide and medical errors – have grown too loud to ignore. The purpose of this conference is to engage healthcare professionals and leaders in the current national conversation about the prevalence of clinician burnout, the reasons for the sharp increase in recent years and the effects of burnout on healthcare professionals and systems. The faculty will also examine national initiatives underway to improve well-being and reduce burnout among healthcare professionals and discuss mitigating strategies.
