SEEKING SOLUTIONS TO

PHYSICIAN BURNOUT

Burnout is an indication of underlying organizational dysfunction.

 

Effectively addressing burnout requires a comprehensive strategy that operates at the enterprise, departmental, and individual levels. 

This NEJM Catalyst Roundtable event brought together four experts, all deeply engaged in reducing physician burnout from different perspectives, to share in a robust discussion.

 

  • Christina Maslach, PhD, an icon in the field, one of the original researchers into burnout, and developer of the Maslach Burnout Inventory 

  • Tait Shanafelt, MD, a practicing oncologist, a leading researcher in physician burnout internationally, and the first Chief Wellness Officer at Stanford University Medical School 

  • Karen Weiner, MD, MBA, a practicing pediatrician and the CEO of the Oregon Medical Group, a 150-physician group practice that has reduced rates of physician burnout below 15% over the past five years 

  • Paul DeChant, MD, MBA, a former practicing family physician, former CEO of the Sutter Gould Medical Foundation, and co-author of Preventing Physician Burnout: Curing the Chaos and Returning Joy to the Practice of Medicine
