Understanding Burnout in Healthcare

By Stacey J. Drubner, JD, LICSW, MPH, April 2019

Many believe that burnout is simply something which we must accept, with no real options for prevention or relief. However, burnout is extremely harmful to individuals who experience it, and it threatens to negatively impact anyone who works in or interfaces with the healthcare system. There are consequences to well-being, job satisfaction, retention of the work force, patient experience and other system costs. Moreover, research indicates that those in healthcare are impacted by burnout more than those who work in other industries.
