Rushton Joins National Committee on Burnout

Cynda Rushton, PhD, RN, FAAN, Anne and George L. Bunting Professor of Clinical Ethics, has been chosen to serve on a newly formed National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine committee to seek systemic solutions to clinician burnout. Rushton was one of only two nurses selected for the committee, named Systems Approaches to Improve Patient Care by Supporting Clinician Well-Being.

“Increased severity of illness, patient volumes, pressures to reduce costs, and moral distress are just a few of the factors putting additional stress on health care providers today,” says Rushton. “To turn the tide of burnout, we must commit to fundamental systemic changes in health care along with expanding tools to support the resilience and integrity of frontline clinicians.”

New Research Center

Managing multiple chronic conditions, studying social determinants of health, and providing community-driven care will be pillars of the new PROMOTE research center at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, funded through a National Institutes of Health P30 grant.

“With 2 out of 3 adults in the U.S. experiencing multiple chronic conditions, the need for relevant research and scalable programs is urgent,” says Sarah L. Szanton, PhD, ANP, FAAN, center director and JHSON endowed professor for health equity and social justice. “Our center takes a holistic view of the person, their environment, and their goals. [PROMOTE is shorthand for Promoting Resilience in Persons with Multiple Chronic Conditions.] The center will prepare clinician-researchers to design solutions that are relevant to the family, social, and financial ecosystems that people live in. We want to change the question from ‘What is the matter?’ to ‘What matters most?’ to the patient.”
