Physician Wellness and Mindfulness

Miami, FL US
May 12, 2016

One in every three physicians is experiencing burnout at any given time according to studies involving nearly every medical and surgical specialty. Physician burnout has been linked to detrimental consequences including lower patient satisfaction and care quality; higher medical error rates and malpractice risk; higher physician and staff turnover and serious mental health issues including addiction. A recent national lifestyle study demonstrates that physicians who learned to focus on self-awareness and mindful communication showed improvements in measures of well-being and demonstrated an enhancement in personal characteristics associated with a more patient-centered orientation to clinical care.
