San Diego, CA., October 25, 2018 - Jeffrey M. Smith, MD, FACS, CPC will present “Burnout, Resilience and Wellness: My Argument for the Stronger Canary,” taking place at the UCSD/Rady Children's Hospital – San Diego (RCHSD) Surgical Grand Rounds on Friday, October 26, 2018 from 7:00 - 8:00 am.
80-90% of burnout contributors come from external stresses of the organization, healthcare system, and our culture. Addressing the fourth aim (provider experience and satisfaction) of the Quadruple Aim for organizations would have more significant impact on burnout prevention and wellness. Changing these takes more time, due to bureaucracy, differing opinions of what actions will have the greatest impact, budgets, and more. What if we physicians at least took on that which we have the most potential to control - ourselves? What if we integrated methods and tools that promoted wellness, positive sustainable resilience, and decrease the signs and symptoms of burnout. I am not waiting around for “them.”
1) Take the discussion of burnout beyond definitions and causes, and start creating effective strategies to manage it on both an individual and organizational level.
