In a study conducted by the American Medical Association and the Mayo Clinic, researchers found that when compared to the general U.S. population, physicians:
- Displayed higher rates of emotional exhaustion
- Reported lower satisfaction with work-life balance
As a healthcare provider you’re called upon to provide the highest quality care. In order to achieve this, your own optimal health, wellness, and work satisfaction are critical.
Yet tedious administrative tasks and increasing expectations concerning productivity and documentation can create enormous stress.
As a result, physicians and health care providers like you are increasingly experiencing anxiety, fatigue, burnout, and depression.
Even if you’re not experiencing symptoms of stress right now, you know it’s in your best interest and in the interest of your patients that you stay healthy and find meaning in your work and in your personal life.
