The National Academy of Medicine's (NAM) Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience (Clinician Well-Being Collaborative) was created in 2017 to raise the visibility of clinician mental illness and burnout; improve our understanding of challenges to clinician well-being; and promote solutions to care for clinicians so patients can receive better care. Following the release of the Collaborative's National Plan in 2022, the Collaborative has started a Change Maker campaign to carry out actionable steps outlined in the Plan. Over the next 2 years, the Collaborative will offer technical support to "Change Maker Accelerators" who will commit to implementing these steps and measure progress accordingly. Additionally, the Collaborative will enable individuals and institutions to become involved either as Change Maker Nodes (by amplifying the National Plan to their own networks) or Change Maker Champions (by institutionalizing well-being as a long-term value). The goal of this phase is to encourage participation in action steps from the National Plan.
