ACC Joins NAM Change Maker Campaign to Advance Health Workforce Well-Being

The ACC has joined the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) and 190 other health organizations and stakeholders in support of the Change Maker Campaign, aimed at improving health worker well-being and workforce resilience.

Led by NAM’s Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being & Resilience, the campaign is an opportunity to facilitate information sharing among stakeholders, encourage collaboration across ongoing initiatives, document their impact and amplify effective solutions to common workforce challenges.

“We know that the burnout crisis is a challenge that can only be solved if we work together to support health workers and ultimately all patients and communities. The Change Maker Campaign is an exciting opportunity to mobilize a collective effort to drive change,” said NAM President Victor J. Dzau, MD, FACC. “With hundreds of organizations as part of the campaign, we can achieve a critical mass of health systems, hospitals, practices, academia, professional associations, private sectors, and related entities to truly make the major changes needed to reverse and prevent this health workforce crisis.”

“Clinician well-being is an essential component of ACC’s strategic plan,” said Laxmi S. Mehta, MD, FACC, chair of the ACC’s Clinician Well-Being Work Group. “The ACC Clinician Well-Being Work Group is dedicated to improving the well-being of the cardiovascular care team and so it is an honor for the ACC to join the NAM Change Maker Campaign. We look forward to sharing our successes as well as learning from other leading organizations on how to best to improve professional fulfillment and reduce burnout for all clinicians.”   

Protecting clinician well-being will be a key topic addressed at ACC Legislative Conference 2023, taking place Oct. 15-17 in Washington, DC. Learn more about the health policy issues the ACC is advocating for here.
