The National Academy of Medicine marched publicly on Friday, July 14, 2017, to shape its ambition of combating exhaustion and burnout amongst various health workers including doctors and nurses.

The academy conducted an open meeting for everyone at its headquarters in Washington. Mr. Victor Dzau, president of the National Academy of Medicine described people’s opinions as an essential factor in determining a campaign and modify the culture of medicine so that it becomes kinder towards its practitioners thus enabling them to offer better care services.

The academy had also organized a conference in January to organize action collaborative on clinician resilience and wellbeing. The members of the academy focused on the report of an age-old initiative it took 20 years ago about healing the health system that overburdens its practitioners, thus breeding inefficiency and resulting in error-prone, low-quality care.

According to a study that took place lately, more than half of the doctors in the United States are experiencing one or probably multiple symptoms of exhaustion and burnout. This ranges to roughly twice the occurrence of burnouts in other citizens of the nation. One third of the 2.6 million nurses in the hospitals of the U.S claim to be suffering from emotional exhaustion and eighteen percent of women go through depression. This is a vast number compared with nine percent national prevalence of depression. Their struggle with burnout and exhaustion profoundly impacts the type of care they offer to their patients hence aiding the rise in medical errors.

The U.S news special report that was published last year in September 2016 focused mainly on the health care services. It highlighted several changes that started taking place years ago with increasing complexity in the medicine industry, loss of trust in patients for doctors and nurses, shifting authority from expert physicians to corporations that currently control and manage a considerable chunk of health care domain, multiplying demand for performance improvement and documentation. These issues motivated the academy to offer support to the medicine practitioners.
