Don’t Agonize, Organize: Healthcare in Crisis and Resident Physician Unionization Webinar
Thursday, January 26th, from 8-9pm EST
The US Surgeon General’s Office has put out an advisory report highlighting the need to address the health worker burnout crisis. Others would describe this burnout as moral injury, resulting from the ideals and values of front line workers confronting the callous indifference of the healthcare system. Instead of trying to heroically do more with less, many senior physicians are leaving the field while younger clinicians are leading efforts to organize in the form of unions. As the challenges of healthcare continue to unfold in the face of the pandemic, join us as we discuss what front line clinicians are facing, how trainees are resisting via unionizing, and how these trends fit into a larger landscape of health worker organizing.
