Addressing Physician Burnout and Moral Injury: Bringing About Meaningful Change
During these last two years, physicians have been hanging on by a thread. While burnout and moral injury were well-recognized pre-pandemic, Covid-19 has laid bare the need to meaningfully address physician well-being.
As a follow-up to our conversations with Dr. Wendy Dean, and the Physician Well-Being Team at AdventHealth, comprised of Dr. Michael Torres, Dr. Leila Durr, and Mary Dijkstra, this virtual roundtable spurs on a conversation about what needs to change before physician burnout and moral injury can truly be addressed.
Some topics of conversation include:
- The difference between burnout & moral injury
- What are the root causes of moral injury and burnout
- What needs to change for physicians to enjoy their profession
- How to empower physicians to act as one voice
