How You Can Help
The body of literature about physician burnout and its ramifications is overwhelming. It will take the engagement of all sectors of the healthcare world—and, frankly, all of us—to stem this tide. We must come together, and work together, for the greater good: from medical schools and teaching hospitals, to healthcare organizations, to insurance companies, to professional associations, to practicing physicians, and to the citizenry, i.e., patients themselves. For we, and our loved ones, will all be patients at various times in our lives, and will want the care of a healthy, fully-engaged, dedicated doctor.
