Healthcare Burnout Symposium and ANA California Joint Press Release

Healthcare Burnout Symposium and the American Nurses Association, California chapter announce new partnership to end clinician burnout and promote wellness.

LOS ANGELES, CA –ICD and Healthcare Burnout Symposium announce a new partnership and collaboration with the American Nurses Association\California. This timely Symposium is a call to action for healthcare organizations to commit to creating and cultivating workplace cultures that prioritize health worker well-being.

The Healthcare Burnout Symposium will convene February 23-25, 2023, at the UCLA Luskin Conference Center, Los Angeles. The Symposium will address clinician burnout as a public health emergency that requires immediate action. This mental health crisis, fueled by the pandemic, has resulted in elevated anxiety, depression, isolation, PTSD, and burnout for nurses and many healthcare workers.

This February, nurses and healthcare leaders from across the country will gather at this Symposium to inspire a shift in focus from advocating for change within healthcare systems to driving specific actions, innovations, and strategies to end clinician burnout.

Leading researchers will present at the Healthcare Burnout Symposium, including well-being experts Christine Sinsky, Karen Grimley, and Steve Swensen, Nancy Blake, among many other nurses, physicians and wellness officers. The conference agenda will also include healthcare professionals who have personally experienced burnout in their workplace. Special Keynote addresses will be made by Xavier Becerra, HHS Secretary and Dr. Diana Ramos, CA Surgeon General.

“Even now, nurses continue to provide patients with exceptional care while working in everchanging circumstances. Supporting leading-edge discussions that prioritize nurses’ well-being, like that of the Healthcare Burnout Symposium, will help establish new policies and alliances, and boost support for nurses who need timely mental health care,” says Dr. Marketa Houskova, Executive Director of ANA\California.

“We are excited to work with the ANA\California, an organization at the forefront of fostering wellness for nursing professionals. Together, we aim to start a movement dedicated to bolstering the well-being of everyone who works in healthcare with a conference program that directly addresses the causes of burnout and provides insights and solutions as to how to reduce it, thereby increasing patient satisfaction and the well-being of all individuals working in our health care systems,” says Bill Doherty, President of ICD.
