This week, Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued a new advisory on Addressing The Health Care Workforce Burnout. The advisory highlights the urgent need to address the burnout crisis impacting health care workers across the country. Notably, the Biden Administration emphasizes the mental health and wellbeing of health workers as a priority and promotes it as a core objective of the President’s National Mental Health Strategy. Some of the recommendations in the advisory include eliminating punitive policies for workers seeking mental health and substance use disorder care, investing in public health and the public health workforce, and reducing administrative burdens to help health workers have productive time with patients, communities, and colleagues.
