Beyond Provider “Burnout”

The Goal of provider well-being and retention
The incidence and severity of provider “burnout” has been steadily increasing for all medical specialties. “Burnout” is not unique to physicians. Nor is it unique to healthcare. “Burnout” is not simply too much work, but rather the result of the frustration of the work, perceptions of powerlessness, and lack of optimal work/life balances. Often, symptoms are not recognized in a timely fashion, resulting in severe consequences for the provider, the organization, and the patients. As organizations struggle to recognize and manage this problem, Dr. Berkowitz will discuss how we need to move ahead to change our concept of “burnout” moving toward the goal of provider health and provider retention. Individual practitioners, their families, and their respective organizations can work together to make the practice of medicine more rewarding and meaningful for the long term. How can your organization better provide ongoing Value for your providers?
