The Collaborative for Health and Renewal in Medicine (CHARM) is a group of medical educators, leaders in academic medicine, experts in burnout research and interventions, and trainees working together with the combined mission to promote well-being among trainees and practicing physicians.
CHARM believes that the well-being of all health providers is fundamental to the functioning of health systems, the safety of individual providers, and the provision of the highest quality patient care. The group is action-oriented and focused on creating deliverables for widespread dissemination that can empower individuals dedicated to building more supportive workplace communities for tomorrow’s physicians.
CHARM is committed as a group to advancing the awareness of individual and system-level interventions designed to mitigate trainee as well as provider burnout and promote well-being. In so doing, CHARM has developed a number of tools and resources:
- The CHARM-Arnold P. Gold Foundation Charter on Physician Well-Being, published in JAMA, is a landmark document designed to guide groups and individuals, from a global healthcare organization to a single medical student.
- Annotated Bibliography of Evidence-Based Interventions for Medical Student, Trainee and Practicing Physician Wellbeing
- American College of Physicians Practice Advisor Module: Making the Case to Address Clinician Burnout (free registration required)
- Well-Being in Graduate Medical Education: A Call for Action, published in Academic Medicine
- A Roadmap for Research on Resident Well-Being, published in The American Journal of Medicine
