Innovating to Prevent Burnout in Physicians
Physician burnout is defined as a long-term stress reaction that includes emotional exhaustion, a sense of depersonalization, and a lack of a sense of personal accomplishment. (Mark Linzer) Burnout occurs in all medical specialties but is highest in those physicians practicing on the front lines in emergency rooms and in primary care settings. In this session, the panelists will discuss innovative ways to prevent burnout in physicians on the front line of caring for vulnerable populations.

- What are some innovative approaches to help prevent burnout in this population and can we look for ideas in any other common burnout professions?
