On May 19, 2021, the AMA held a webinar in the AMA STEPS Forward™ series: "Heath care well-being and burnout during COVID-19: Findings from a national survey."
As the COVID-19 pandemic began to take hold in the U.S., the AMA launched a national assessment tool to support health systems in continuously monitoring well-being, burnout, and stress in their health care workers and non-clinical staff.
Kyra Cappelucci shared findings from the national survey and offered insights on solutions shared by over 100 participating health systems from around the country.
