Finding balance again in medicine
from MD Magazine
Unhealthy. Exhausted. Fog-brained, inefficient, apathetic, depressed — how did these terms come to describe her? Had she not initially excelled in her career, created a loving family, loyal friendships and a great golf swing? Years after being entrusted with caring for the critically ill, the hours, days and months on-end and the ever-escalating bureaucratic hurdles overcame the things she valued and used to balance her life. Dr. Roper, a successful critical care physician, now exhibits what the World Health Organization describes as an "occupational phenomenon" in the workplace: burnout.
