Provider Burnout

Physician and clinician burnout is at an epidemic level. There's a lot of people talking about it, but I'm not seeing a lot of changes being implemented, to help correct this issue.

Physician and clinician burnout isn't a new subject. I'm certain that doctors, surgeons, pharmacists, nurses, etc have experienced burnout as long as the healthcare profession has existed. We may not have described it as "burnout" but it definitely existed.

With the advent of Social Media and instant communication, we have access to data and stories better than we ever have as a society, and that alone can create information overload and burnout.

Burnout is a global problem with serious & far reaching implications!!
