Clinician Wellness - Resources and Links

In fall 2018, NCMB participated in a statewide summit focused on systemic drivers of burnout. It is in everyone’s interest to reduce burnout and encourage resilience in clinicians. Burnout contributes to clinical errors, loss of provider compassion, work and personal stress, depression and, in extreme cases, suicide.
