Increasing administrative responsibilities – due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models – reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Increasing responsibilities and stress can lead to physician burnout, which plagues 50 percent of practicing physicians. Burnout can have a significant impact on organizational productivity, morale, costs and the quality of care being delivered. By measuring and responding to burnout, physicians and their practices will be able to reduce sources of stress and intervene with programs and policies that support professional well-being.
Learners must successfully complete the quiz, answering 4 out of 5 questions correctly and complete the evaluation. Participants can request a certificate upon completion.
