Physician burnout: can we make a difference together?

04 septembre 2015

BACKGROUND: Despite the documented prevalence and clinical ramifications of physician distress, few rigorous studies have tested interventions to address the problem. METHODS: OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that an intervention involving a facilitated physician small-group curriculum would result in improvement in well-being. DESIGN: A randomized clinical trial of practicing physicians. Additional data were collected on nontrial participants responding to annual surveys timed to coincide with the trial surveys.
