Systems Approaches to Improve Patient Care by Supporting Clinician Well-Being.

National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Taking Action Against Clinician Burnout: A Systems Approach to Professional Well-Being. Washington, DC: The National Academies Press; 2019. 

Burnout can impair health care workers' ability to practice safely. This project will examine the evidence on the conditions that contribute to clinician burnout as well as the consequences of burnout on clinicians and patients. The committee will also assess system-level approaches to reduce burnout and improve clinician well-being and define gaps in the research base that must be addressed to support evidence-based interventions.
