Episode nine of the “MedChat” podcast is now available.
This episode, “Addressing Provider Wellness and Resilience,” discusses the topic of more than half of U.S. doctors experiencing at least one symptom of burnout and a significant worsening of dissatisfaction in recent years. Physician stress and burnout can impact the quality of patient care as well as physicians’ own health and well-being. It is important for physicians to recognize the symptoms of burnout and to identify strategies/habits to promote resilience and work-life balance.
Moderator James Jennings, M.D., executive medical director, adult primary care and director, provider well-being, Norton Healthcare, speaks with Paul DeChant, M.D., MBA, FAAFP, deputy chief health officer, IBM Watson Health.
