Neurosurgery Supports Legislation to Address Physician Burnout

On March 25, the AANS and the CNS joined in a letter to Sens. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Todd C. Young (R-Pa.) and Reps. Susan E. Wild (D-Pa.) and David B. McKinley (R-W.Va.) supporting the Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act (S. 610/H.R. 1667). This legislation aims to reduce and prevent mental and behavioral health conditions, suicide and burnout, as well as increase access to evidence-based treatment for physicians, medical students and other health care professionals — especially those who continue to be overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
