Physicians in the United States suffer from more burnout than other workers in the United States, new research shows. A national survey of more than 7000 US physicians reveals that close to one half report having at least 1 symptom of burnout.
"The fact that almost 1 in 2 US physicians has symptoms of burnout implies that the origins of this problem are rooted in the environment and care delivery system rather than in the personal characteristics of a few susceptible individuals.
"Policy makers and health care organizations must address the problem of physician burnout for the sake of physicians and their patients," according to the author of the study, Tait D. Shanafelt, MD, Mayo Clinic.
