According to a release from the American Hospital Association (AHA), health care workers play an absolutely critical role in treating patients and saving lives each and every day, and that fact has never been more evident than during the COVID-19 pandemic. But the reality is that the pandemic has only exacerbated the existing strain on our health care workforce.
The National Plan for Health Workforce Well-Being helps address the needs of the health care workforce by proposing actionable solutions, including eliminating regulatory and policy barriers that impede health care workers’ daily work. The National Plan also promotes innovative strategies and new research to improve well-being and mental health.
The AHA is proud to contribute to the work of the National Academy of Medicine Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience as we continue to develop resources to protect and optimize the well-being of current health care workers and future generations of clinicians.
