Lunchtime Listen Recommendation (a series of lunches, really):
The National Academy of Medicine's Clinician Well-Being Series
updated 12.18.2019 
How full is your wellness bucket?
Your resilience bucket?
Are you making time for regular self-care and wellness activities that build your resilience?

For health care providers, especially those in hospital-based practice, the burn-out rate is very high.

The National Academy of Medicine is running a series of open meetings on "Clinician Well-Being".  These 2018 meeting sessions were webcast and recorded.  You can view the recordings on YouTube and read the related discussion papers on their website.

Remember, in integrative health, a core tenet of the practice, whichever your specific discipline, follows this basic idea, "Physician, heal thyself."

More about the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience
"In 2017, the National Academy of Medicine launched the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, a network of more than 60 organizations committed to reversing trends in clinician burnout.  The Collaborative has three goals:
1.  Improve baseline understanding of challenges to clinician well-being;
2.  Raise the visibility of clinician stress and burnout; and
3.  Elevate evidence-based, multidisciplinary solutions that will improve patient care by caring for the caregiver"

Quotes from the NAM webpage:
"Patient-centered, high-quality health care relies on the well-being, health, and safety of health care clinicians. However, alarmingly high rates of clinician burnout in the United States are detrimental to the quality of care being provided, harmful to individuals in the workforce, and costly. It is important to take a systemic approach to address burnout that focuses on the structure, organization, and culture of health care." 
"Taking Action Against Clinician Burnout: A Systems Approach to Professional Well-Being builds upon two groundbreaking reports from the past twenty years, To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System and Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, which both called attention to the issues around patient safety and quality of care. This report explores the extent, consequences, and contributing factors of clinician burnout and provides a framework for a systems approach to clinician burnout and professional well-being, a research agenda to advance clinician well-being and recommendations for the field."  -NAM webpage

What is a NAM consensus study report?
Any "Consensus Study Report" from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is the documentation of the "evidence-based consensus on the study's statement of task by an authoring committee of experts. Reports typically include findings, conclusions, and recommendations based on information gathered by the committee and the committee's deliberations. Each report has been subjected to a rigorous and independent peer-review process and it represents the position of the National Academies on the statement of task."
