The impact of back-to-work re-openings, including-COVID- related stress, reduced staff, and the anxiety from the concern of infecting family members contributed to a burnout rate higher than that of the first year of the pandemic when quarantines temporarily shuttered clinics, hospitals and healthcare organisations.
Burnout can be addressed at the individual level, by helping clinicians find ways to cope with stress, as well as at an organisational level, by seeking ways to address the factors contributing to staff burnout. The most effective strategies for reducing burnout rates usually involve a combination of individual and organisational initiatives.
Why it’s important to reduce the technological burden...
Clinicians often point to clerical tasks and burdensome technology as causes of burnout, so organisations may want to collect their feedback about systems like electronic medical records (EMRs). Clinicians often feel the increased documentation required by EMRs leads to decreased face-to-face time with patients, and many healthcare professionals become frustrated with having to learn and relearn these complex systems.
“We went to school to see patients, but now, for every minute we have with a patient, we are spending two additional minutes on the computer. It often takes a 60-hour week just to keep up with documentation, and that is tough on personal relationships and families."
Philip Kroth, MD, director of Biomedical Informatics Research at the University of New Mexico
