Burnout Awareness and Prevention for Health Care Professionals
Burnout in health care professionals is associated with suboptimal care and practices.
Results emerging from research suggest that health care provider stress, fatigue, burnout, depression, or general psychological distress negatively affects healthcare systems and patient care."
(Wallace et al. (2009)
Present Well-BeingTM in the Workspace for Health Care Professionals is a research-based, experiential curriculum of mental and emotional well-being support for health care professionals that increases burnout awareness and prevention while stoking mental and emotional resilience to the innate stressors unique to the health care field.
Research confirms that burnout has reached epidemic proportions for our medical professionals. Many report feeling overburdened, burnt out, and unable to cope with the social, emotional, physical, and mental demands of their profession. "Heavy workloads, feelings of powerlessness, and ill-designed jobs and work environments" have become real threats to the psychosocial well-being of our health care giver (Burke & Greenglass, 2001; Hersch et al., 2016).
THE COST OF CARING
The "cost of caring" in human service professions is experienced as compassion fatigue, secondary trauma, sacrifice syndrome, and burnout.
Those who don't care, don't burn out.
Unchecked and accumulated stress in one’s professional life can reach a destructive tipping point where what innocuously begins as an “occupational identity crisis” generalizes to the entire self-concept of the human service professional.
(Vandenberghe & Huberman, 1999)
