Rochester General Hospital Edition
Burnout, defined as “physical or mental collapse caused by overwork or stress,” can happen in almost any profession, but the high-intensity healthcare environment makes clinicians uniquely prone to it. An evidence-based approach to the phenomenon can help prevent and even mitigate its harmful effects on employees and patients.
