1| "Physician #burnout is real. The rate of suicide is really high. On top of that, with all the stressors of #Covid, we're hurting & we're afraid to show that we're hurting for fear of repercussions, for fear of being termed weak."

2| "It's the mentality of the patient comes first, which is great. But where do the providers come? And maybe that's a paradigm that needs to shift. We need to take care of ourselves. We need to take care of each other so that we can then take care of our patients."

I don't think people understand the toll that the pandemic is taking on healthcare workers. I treat many physicians & their families. I spent an entire session with a doc who just cried for over 20 minutes. They didn't have the ability to speak. The grief & trauma is overwhelming
I spoke to @BostonGlobe about healthcare worker burnout d/t Covid in Dec. Nothing has changed. Things are actually getting worse. Have we learned nothing?! What are we going to do when HCWs leave? Who will be left & will they have anything left to give?…
I remember during the peak of Covid, HCWs were writing their wills and walking into work everyday terrified for their own life and safety. Not having enough PPE to protect themselves or their patients. Facing death daily. Feeling completely helpless. This is all traumatic.

ICYMI: Our recently published (open access) study on #physicianburnout was the first to identify priority interventions for work stress and burnout by interviewing hospital doctors about their own experiences… (1/4)
Listening to doctors themselves, their experiences of work stress and burnout, and their proposed solutions was a valuable exercise. They described scenarios reflecting a hospital system under strain and sustained pressure to meet unmanageable demand. (2/4)
They also described a culture in which performance is valued above wellness, in which doctors who struggle to cope are perceived as weak and in which doctors continue to work when physically and mentally ill. (3/4)
