In addition to requiring the right knowledge, skills, and experience, the delivery of high-quality patient care depends on having a healthy, productive, and engaged physician workforce. For any diplomates interested in contributing to the conversation on clinician well-being, the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, an initiative of the National Academy of Medicine, will host a public meeting in Chicago from May 28-29, 2019. A live webcast of the meeting will also be available. The event will feature expert panels on issues related to redesigning the clinical learning environment. Registration is free.

Elevate areas of agreement around redefining well-being, identity formation, and professionalism as clinicians embracing team-based care with a culture of respect
Highlight drivers of challenges to clinician well-being in the clinical learning environment and propose systems-level solutions for improving well-being including leadership approaches
Emphasize the tension and linkage between the learning and working environment
Use an appreciative inquiry philosophy to create environments and cultures that nurture discussions throughout the developmental journey of a clinician and across clinical professions
Elevate the areas that bring clinicians’ joy, pleasure, and meaning in the professional and learning environments
