Description: Recent research published by the National Academy of Medicine links poor healthcare outcomes to clinician burnout, including lower quality, increased costs, higher turnover and alarming rates of suicide and depression. Evidence-based strategies to address the problem are known, but less clear is how organizations can successfully implement them.
The issues related to this hidden epidemic will be described and how the ability to achieve optimal performance and outcome excellence is undermined by worker fatigue and burnout. The importance of worker overall health and well-being to create and sustain a culture of safety, a healthy work environment, and a work-life balance will be presented.
1. Discuss recent research linking burnout to poor personal and organizational performance
2. Identify promising approaches and current strategies to address fatigue and burnout
3. Understand how to recognize risks in co-workers and team members
4. Describe resources available for personal and organizational well-being
