Healthcare Leadership's Role in Addressing Physician Burnout



Healthcare leadership teams have the responsibility to plan, initiate, and maintain burnout solutions in their organization. This is a tall order — even for the most experienced leaders.

On top of all this, burnout solutions are more complicated because burnout is a deeply personal issue. Medical professionals experiencing burnout are likely also dealing with consequences of burnout such as increased feelings of hopelessness, irritability, impatience, poor interpersonal relationships, and physical illness. The emotional exhaustion felt by healthcare employees alone can make it difficult for leaders to engage their followers in their burnout solution.
