Professional burnout affects providers in various roles, specialties, and locations throughout the country — and today, its discussion is as prevalent as the problem itself. We’ve shared a lot of burnout-related content with hopes to normalize the conversation and offer providers the resources they need. However, that doesn’t change the fact that 51 percent of physicians have reported feelings of burnout in 2017. In the midst of the ongoing physician shortage, providers across the nation are stepping up and often prioritizing the well-being of their patients and coworkers over their own.
“51 percent of physicians have reported feelings of burnout in 2017.”
As these selfless medical professionals make their own sacrifices, the question remains: What can the rest of us do to help? Here at Barton, facilities seeking short- to long-term coverage are matched with dedicated locums who are eager to do their part. But we want to keep the conversation going.
With that in mind, Barton connected with one physician whose firsthand experiences with burnout motivated him to start helping people through a new channel. We’ve partnered with Dr. Zubin Damania, also known as ZDoggMD, for his latest episode of “Incident Report.”
As you watched ZDogg’s video, we hope you reflected on how to achieve more fulfilling careers for yourselves, your colleagues, and tomorrow’s medical professionals. What will your first steps be as we inch closer to 2018?
