Conversations about burnout, clinician well-being and the effects of toxic stress increasingly dominate discussions within the health care field. These crucial conversations exist on many levels, from the physiologic and individual, to the collective and political.
Sometimes the conversation is about medical errors, and sometimes it is about clinician suicides. There are many faces to this contemporary dialogue, and most of them share tragedy and a sense of collective helplessness and bewilderment as a common thread.
We last summed up the state of knowledge and awareness of burnout in season four of our series. We felt that this year – with discussion on burnout and moral injury so much in the forefront – that we revisit the topic and summarize what advances and shifts we’ve observed in this rapidly evolving area.
In this presentation, attendees will learn:
A more holistic approach that integrates the embodied, subjective and social environment
About advances in understanding the relationship between subcortical neurophysiology, burnout and trauma
More about why burnout, behavioural sequelae and addiction reflect traumatic stress and not depression.
How conversations about burnout cannot take place without a deeper understanding of moral injury, betrayal theory and dignity.
Barriers to the implementation of effective responses to the burnout and moral injury crisis.
