National Academy of Medicine: Four articles on practitioner burn-out

The George Family Foundation has made a two year grant to the National Academy of Medicine’s Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education to help support a 2-day convening to address burn-out and suicides among healthcare professionals.  The Forum, which will take place in May 2018, will include leaders from all of the key national associations representing healthcare professions including the Academy of Pain Management, the American Academy of Nursing, the Board of Family Medicine, the American Medical Association, and the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education, to name a few.  These articles are just a few important publications that are being written on practitioner burn-out.  We believe that self-care and integrative medicine practices are ways to address this growing problem.  We look forward to supporting the Global Forum as they look for lasting solutions.
