An InCrowd survey found many physicians feel their practice or facility is not doing enough to address and prevent burnout.
Here are six statistics:
• Of those polled, 74 percent of primary care physicians and ER physicians said their facility or practice is failing to take effective steps to address and prevent burnout.
• Fifty-seven percent of PCPs and ER physicians reported personally experiencing burnout.
• While they did not personally experience burnout, 36 percent said they knew someone who had.
• Thirty-seven percent said their work frustrated them a few times each week, or even daily.
• More than half (58 percent) reported they were not sure if they would recommend a medical career to a family member or child.
• Respondents cited time pressures as the leading cause of physician burnout.
