Today is National Physician Suicide Awareness day. #NPSADay

A couple of issues drive problems with physician mental well-being:
- Job-associated burnout
- Stigma and harm associated with seeking help (having to report this condition on your license, and to your hospital)
What I find interesting are the responses you get from physicians when you ask about what actions can be taken to reduce burnout. Not shorter hours / more pay.

- Reducing low-value work & EHR clicks
- Eliminating insurance barriers like #PriorAuth
These factors don't just affect physicians. Nurses, RTs, MAs, CNAs & more are harmed.

We are in a work-force crisis. We should be looking to protect the people we have.

Forget the mindfulness exercises.

Reduce EHR burdens.
Reduce box-checking.
