SafeHaven™ was founded in 2020 after recognizing a greater need to provide healthcare teams the support they need to stay well and prevent burnout.

"ICD admires the work SafeHaven is doing to address burnout in the healthcare workforce.

The SafeHaven program includes a comprehensive suite of resources designed specifically for physicians to help mitigate the effects of stress and burnout and allow for better work/life integration.

"SafeHaven is proud to sponsor the opening night reception for ICD's Healthcare Burnout Symposium. We admire what ICD is doing to raise awareness of burnout in the healthcare workforce, and we believe this symposium is an important opportunity to bring together stakeholders from across the healthcare industry to make an impact on this critical issue.

We look forward to seeing you there!", says Melina Davis, CEO and EVP of the Medical Society of Virginia.

As countless studies have shown, healthcare burnout was rampant long before March 2020; the COVID-19 pandemic only made it worse. With ever-rising staff shortages and crushing workloads for the workers who stay, healthcare organizations have no choice but to act. The Healthcare Burnout Symposium brings together leaders from across the country to address the multiple facets of burnout – such as increasing time constraints, technology barriers, and government regulations – and offers actionable insights and evidence-based solutions to promote well-being across healthcare ecosystems.

The Healthcare Burnout Symposium is part of a suite of signature healthcare conferences ICD hosts each year, working to make positive changes in healthcare. In its 5th edition, the Healthcare Burnout Symposium will be held at NYU Langone’s Murphy Auditorium in New York City Nov 2-3, with the opportunity to attend pre-conference workshops on November 1st. Hospital leadership, physicians, nurses, and all professionals affected by burnout are encouraged to attend. Head to for more information.

ANNOUNCE A NEW PARTNERSHIP TO ADDRESS THE HEALTHCARE BURNOUT CRISIS NEW YORK, NY – ICDevents announces a new partnership with KLAS Research, and The Healthcare Burnout Symposium, to address the burnout crisis and increase the well-being of physicians, nurses, and administrators.

The Healthcare Burnout Symposium will convene at the NY Academy of Medicine, New York, NY, on June 23-24, 2022, to address clinician burnout. Physician and Nurse Leader burnout is a public health crisis that demands action across the entire healthcare ecosystem. Burnout affects not only clinicians, but also the patients they serve. At the Healthcare Burnout Symposium, thought leaders and stakeholders will be gathered from around the country to address the multiple facets of burnout, such as time constraints, technology, and regulations, and gain actionable solutions to implement with health systems.

KLAS Research is passionate about providing data and solutions from their research on how to address the burnout problem they are seeing in healthcare today. Lauren Manzione, a highly respected project analyst at KLAS Research will present how to improve clinician turnover, burnout, and how improving the EHR experience can help. This presentation and all recorded sessions from the Healthcare Burnout Symposium will be available on the ICD Healthcare Network.

At the beginning of 2020, KLAS began surveying clinicians in their Arch Collaborative regarding how likely they are to leave their organization in the next two years. Using this data from over 59,000 clinicians, Klas hopes to shed light on which clinicians are likely to depart and what factors healthcare organizations can influence to improve clinician retention and resolve clinicians’ concerns. This new partnership between the Healthcare Burnout Symposium and KLAS Research will help provide answers to the current burnout crisis. See these solutions and answers at the Healthcare Burnout Symposium in New York, NY on June 23-24, 2022.

“As a major force in the healthcare content business, we are delighted to combine forces with a powerhouse in the healthcare insight and data with a goal of preventing burnout and maintaining wellness on the front lines” said Bill Doherty, ICD Events President and Conference Director.

This newsletter comes to you at an interesting moment in clinical burnout given the lingering effects of the pandemic, coupled with stressors that preceded it stemming from technology, enterprise culture, and broader workforce challenges.

It also gives you a preview of some of the deeper themes that will be presented in the upcoming Healthcare Burnout Symposium in New York City on June 23-24.

As you will see in our first piece below, this burnout epidemic has received national attention with the announcement where United States Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued a new Surgeon General’s Advisory highlighting the urgent need to address the health worker burnout crisis across the country.

Paul DeChant, MD, MBA - Author, speaker, consultant, and recognized expert on clinician burnout

Burnout expert Dr. Paul DeChant espouses that control is the second driver of burnout. There are many ways in which physicians experience lack of control. As you will read in this piece, many of these are outside of a front-line physician’s span of control, such as regulatory requirements, choice of EHR, etc. DeChant refers to these as “pebbles in the shoe” that can only be relieved by creative problem solving like the daily huddle. (By now almost everyone is aware that a huddle is a brief, stand-up meeting of the team working together in an office or on a unit.)

The burnout producing problems that are addressed in the huddle are there because someone on the team identified the problem, and rather than simply putting up with it, they put it on the huddle board to be reviewed the next day. Read on to explore how you might be able to institute the huddle strategy for burnout prevention.

Burnout poses a major challenge for health care. It is the result of mismatches between the workplace and the worker, in six critical areas. Innovative answers to this challenge need to modify this job-person relationship by managing the chronic job conditions in these areas, so that people can work smarter rather than just harder.
