The Climate Crisis: Addressing Impacts on Clinical Practice

The consequences of the climate crisis are far-reaching, the health impacts are not borne equally. Have you considered how you will educate yourself on the health effects of climate change? Yet, knowledge alone isn’t enough, and we must begin the broader conversation of how to translate this information into actions that improve patient outcomes and strengthen the resiliency of our health systems. For example, what will you say to your patients who are experiencing or are at risk for experiencing climate-related health issues? What changes have you noticed in your practice, hospital, and community? Are you and your organization prepared? NEJM Resident 360 has invited a panel of experts to help educate and inspire health care professionals and students about the health impacts of climate change. This discussion follows a symposium at the Cleveland Clinic and will also include a special focus on the Midwest.
