The Research on Care Community (ROCC) is an AAMC-member organization whose members share an interest in integrating research into care delivery. They include a range of leaders from academic medicine, such as CEOs, deans, chief medical officers, vice presidents, chairs, and other faculty.
ROCC fosters collaboration between researchers and clinical providers who are engaged in clinical and translational research to improve quality, safety, health equity and outcomes of their own patient populations. ROCC currently has over 1,000 members who are affiliated with 246 leading medical schools, teaching hospitals, and healthcare organizations.
Through capacity building and enhancing peer-to-peer learning, ROCC supports members focused on identifying and leading approaches that advance:
health system and research integration
alignment of research and quality improvement
institutional commitment to clinical effectiveness and implementation research scholarship
Clinician Well-Being and Resilience: What the Data Show and How We Move Forward
As the COVID-19 public health emergency continues, academic clinicians face unique challenges as they juggle clinical, research, and administrative stressors. In this webinar co-hosted by ROCC and the AAMC’s Council of Faculty and Academic Societies (CFAS), Dr. Bernard Chang of Columbia University Irving Medical Center discussed the body of research on the results of stress on mental and physical health, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on clinician well-being. Dr. Chang also highlighted steps academic health centers can take to mitigate the negative impacts of stress across clinical, research, and educational missions. A Q&A session following the presentation was moderated by Dr. Mona Abaza of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, and Chair of the CFAS Faculty Resilience Committee.
