Taking Action Against Clinician Burnout:
A Systems Approach to Professional Well-Being
 
This new report, from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, 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.
 
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on October 23, 2019 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
