Description: The problem of burnout has consequences for healthcare professionals and patients. Studies have shown that the incidence of burnout may be as high as 50% among physicians. Healthcare professionals with significant symptoms of burnout do not enjoy their work, and the personal toll on them is high. In addition, stress and burnout can affect quality of care and patient safety. This live lecture course will help participants discover their own current propensity for burnout. It will analyze burnout from three perspectives: 1) a large healthcare system viewpoint, 2) a specific workplace viewpoint, and 3) an individual provider viewpoint. The program will offer various levels of strategies for reducing burnout, some that are best implemented by large healthcare systems, some appropriate for practices or workplaces, and some best suited to individuals.
It is recommended to take the Burnout Learner Assessment prior to attending. To access the Burnout Learner Assessment, please log in as a LAMMICO Member and proceed to online education.
