Clinician burnout is largely the result of external factors outside the control of an individual clinician – including regulations, payment incentives, organizational policy and culture, social pressures and stigma, and more. In other words, clinician burnout is a system issue. Therefore, system-level solutions are needed to prevent burnout and promote well-being. Such solutions require significant buy-in from leaders across the health system.
In addition to necessary system-level solutions, strategies like mindfulness and meditation have shown promise in helping individuals build resilience.
