NAM plan for workforce well-being: Reducing stigma

Video

If physicians feel burned out, they need to seek help.

Physicians and other clinicians feeling burned out must seek help, or the conditions can grow much worse. But physicians are not good in seeking mental health treatment due to negative perceptions about why they have problems, and potential licensing issues that discourage mental health care. That could change through a number of actions. Victor J. Dzau, MD, president of the National Academy of Medicine, discusses the Academy’s National Plan for Health Workforce Well-Being, which has seven priority areas to improve work conditions for physicians and medical staff, and ultimately improve patient care.
