Episode 2: Understanding the Hallmarks and Causes of Job Related Burnout Show Notes

Burnout among Healthcare Professionals is consistently high and doesn’t seem to be decreasing. Between more administrative duties, handling struggles with insurance companies, expectations from hospitals and other organizations, it can be overwhelming and take a provider from being available to give quality service. This can create distress as the Provider feels a disconnect from what they want they want to do and what they are required to do.

I got to see one of Dr. Clark Gaither’s presentations on Physician Burnout last Spring and it was awesome. He is known as “Dr. Burnout” and is so knowledgeable on this topic. Dr. Gaither, is a family physician, is currently the Medical Director of the North Carolina Professionals Health Program and a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. He is an accomplished author, blogger, speaker, corporate consultant, and personal life coach. Also known as Dr. Burnout, he is an expert in the identification, mitigation, and prevention of physician job-related burnout. He is the author of REIGNITE, a best-selling book about professional job-related burnout.
