According to a National Academy of Medicine (NAM) report released October 2019, clinician burnout is affecting between one-third and one-half of nurses and physicians. Burnout is also impacting health workers at all levels working in clinical and non clinical job titles.
The changing landscape of the U.S. health care system has had profound effects on clinical practice and the experiences of clinicians, students and trainees (“learners”), and patients and their families. Mounting system pressures have contributed to an imbalance of overwhelming job demands and insufficient job resources for clinicians, causing physical, psychological, and emotional stress, including burnout – a workplace syndrome that is characterized by high emotional exhaustion, high depersonalization (i.e., cynicism), and a low sense of personal accomplishment from work.
