Mayo Clinic Strategies to Reduce Burnout by Stephen Swensen; Tait ShanafeltMayo Clinic Strategies to Reduce Burnout: 12 Actions to Create the Ideal Workplace tells the story of the evolving journey of those in the medical profession. It dwells not on the story of burnout, distress, compassion fatigue, moral injury, and cognitive dissonance but rather on a narrative of hope for professional fulfillment, well-being, joy, and camaraderie. Achieving this aim requires health care professionals and administrative leaders working together to create the ideal workplace-through nurturing positivity and pushing negativity aside. The ultimate aspiration is esprit de corps-the common spirit existing in members of a group that inspires enthusiasm, devotion, loyalty, camaraderie, engagement, and strong regard for the welfare of the team and of common interests and responsibilities. Mayo Clinic Strategies to Reduce Burnout: 12 Actions to Create the Ideal Workplace provides a road map for you to create esprit de corps for your team and organization. The map is paved with information about reliable, patient-centered, and thoughtful systems embedded within psychologically safe and just cultures. The authors drew on their extensive research on the well-being of health care professionals; from their experience in quality, department operations, leadership and organization development, management, safe havens, and care teams; and from their roles as president, chief wellness officer, chief quality officer, chair, principal investigator, senior fellow, and board director.

Healing for Healers by William DormanBurn out. Two words that haunt those in high stress jobs, especially in the medical profession. Long hours and the literal life-and-death nature of the field creates expectations to not only be on call at all hours, but to be at one's best, even at 3:00 AM after a twenty-hour shift. So much energy is devoted to the care of others that self-care is forgotten. Yet, more are noticing and research confirms that self-care is needed, not only for personal sanity but also for quality of work. Unwell medical professionals are not the best at treating others. And this self-care includes not just rest, food, and water, but a deeper care, one that tends the spiritual side as well. To both the spiritually active and the spiritually resistant, hospital chaplain William Dorman offers a guide to understand a more comprehensive, full-bodied self-care. Each chapter begins with case studies, concrete experiences that help unpack abstract concepts which bring much needed peace to stressed individuals. Dorman also structures each chapter to end with prayers and action steps, which offer more concrete ways to care for the self. From working as a hospital chaplain for over 18 years, and serving as the director of chaplaincy services for the largest integrated health care system in New Mexico, Rev. Dorman recognizes the stresses that come to those who have made it their profession to heal others. Healers need healing too--and this guide is the first step.

Burnout by Emily Nagoski; Amelia NagoskiNEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * "This book is a gift! I've been practicing their strategies, and it's a total game-changer."--Brené Brown, PhD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Dare to Lead This groundbreaking book explains why women experience burnout differently than men--and provides a simple, science-based plan to help women minimize stress, manage emotions, and live a more joyful life. Burnout. Many women in America have experienced it. What's expected of women and what it's really like to be a woman in today's world are two very different things--and women exhaust themselves trying to close the gap between them. How can you "love your body" when every magazine cover has ten diet tips for becoming "your best self"? How do you "lean in" at work when you're already operating at 110 percent and aren't recognized for it? How can you live happily and healthily in a sexist world that is constantly telling you you're too fat, too needy, too noisy, and too selfish? Sisters Emily Nagoski, PhD, and Amelia Nagoski, DMA, are here to help end the cycle of feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Instead of asking us to ignore the very real obstacles and societal pressures that stand between women and well-being, they explain with compassion and optimism what we're up against--and show us how to fight back. In these pages you'll learn * what you can do to complete the biological stress cycle--and return your body to a state of relaxation * how to manage the "monitor" in your brain that regulates the emotion of frustration * how the Bikini Industrial Complex makes it difficult for women to love their bodies--and how to defend yourself against it * why rest, human connection, and befriending your inner critic are keys to recovering and preventing burnout With the help of eye-opening science, prescriptive advice, and helpful worksheets and exercises, all women will find something transformative in these pages--and will be empowered to create positive change. Emily and Amelia aren't here to preach the broad platitudes of expensive self-care or insist that we strive for the impossible goal of "having it all." Instead, they tell us that we are enough, just as we are--and that wellness, true wellness, is within our reach. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BOOKRIOT "Burnout is the gold standard of self-help books, delivering cutting-edge science with energy, empathy, and wit.

We tend to think of burnout as a problem we can solve with self-care: more yoga, better breathing techniques, and more resilience.

Employers need to do more. With fascinating research, new findings from the pandemic, and interviews with business leaders around the globe, The Burnout Epidemic offers readers insightful and actionable advice that will empower them to help themselves--and their employees--feel healthier and happier at work.

The Moral Distress Syndrome Affecting Physicians by Eldo E. Frezza"The rise of suicide and burn out among physicians has been brought a new syndrome to healthcare impacting physicians and clinicians alike. In the military world, this condition affects soldiers and is referred to PTSD. But in healthcare, this syndrome is called moral distress. Moral Distress Syndrome includes any or all of the following: depression, PTSD, risk of suicide, divorce, emotional detachment, inability to build relationships, and empathy. The current healthcare system is putting more physicians at risk and therefore, patients. There is a trend in medical schools to train future physicians on how to recognize and balance mitigating circumstances which can cause this syndrome. The intent of this book is to raise awareness of this problem and to start the conversation between physicians who are impacted by this. The book presents all aspects of the Moral Distress Syndrome in a format familiar to physicians: A Grand Rounds with a magistral lecture. Presented in a business novel format, it describes a Grand Rounds with a magistral lecture where the audience asks questions pertaining to this syndrome and provides the answer as provided by the instructor. This format allows the reader to feel as they are participating in the discussion. Each chapter begins with an outline of the points discussed, much like a speaker presenting a slide presentation to an audience. The book is divided into two parts. The first part of the book includes the research, the data, and provides a discussion of the issues and what can cause them. Moral Distress Syndrome, PTSD, Burn Out, suicide, divorce rates, emotional detachment, legal destress syndrome, and physicians leaving medicine are all topics discussed. The second part of the book describes the direct experiences of physicians impacted by moral distress. Through the main character and a lecture setting, the author describes the pain, the emotions, and the distress many physicians experience today. Focus in this section centers on physician empathy to try to point out problems, weaknesses, and issues, and attempts to find possible solutions for physicians facing the same issues. At the end of this section, the author discusses the societal, patients and physicians' responsibilities, the birth of the Moral injury and the AMA's recommendations for physicians suffering from Moral Distress Syndrome"--
