Summary

Professional burnout is an epidemic in America and Europe. Approximately half of physicians and nurses are impaired and at risk for themselves and their patients. Much has been written about professional burnout. The term was originally coined in the 1970s by American psychologist Herbert Freudenberger to describe the consequences of severe stress and high ideals experienced by people working in "helping" professions. Since then, many self-help books have been written to address this looming national public health crisis. But unfortunately, there has been much less written from a personal triumph and solution standpoint on getting to the root cause of why this is occurring now more than ever.

The Resilient Healthcare Organization engages readers with personal anecdotes from physicians and healthcare professionals and their experiences and how they overcame a loss of enthusiasm for work, feelings of cynicism and a low sense of personal accomplishment. The feelings of emotional exhaustion characterized by depersonalization and perceived ineffectiveness. These are the cardinal features that define "burnout" and effect almost 50% of physicians and 30%-70% of nurses.

This book addresses why burnout is viewed as a threat and how it can be fought. The author discusses contributing factors and solutions at the health system and societal level. Additionally, this book explores the current and future etiology and impacts on physicians and healthcare professionals with a significant emphasis on solutions at both the individual level and the system level.
