Physican Burnout Workshop the AAFP Scientific Assembly in Washington DC

Here is the Twitter stream on the day of our Burnout Proof Workshop on the main stage at the AAFP Scientific Assembly.

The room held 4000 and we packed it out. Here is what the people had to say live and in person during the live workshop and the book signing for our new book, "Stop Physician Burnout - what to do when working harder isn't working" the next day.

281 tweets and 37 attached images from attendees are below. This is one of the highest and best uses of Twitter and the next best thing to being there.

Physician Burnout – 3 Signs and 3 Simple Prevention Steps

Physician Burnout – 3 Signs and 3 Simple Prevention Steps

With all the passionate headlines and blog posts written on the health care reform debate/Obamacare, and advances in digital medicine – it is easy to overlook the fact that most healthcare is actually delivered person to person, knee to knee, from doctor to patient behind a closed exam room door.

Medicine is practiced “in the cloud” of one-on-one conversations in offices and hospital rooms all over the world, every single day. These are special conversations full of fear and intimate details. Important decisions are made, life and death hang in the balance at times. In the best cases, diagnoses are made, treatments rendered successfully, empathetic communication takes place, hands are washed and we all live to “fight” another day.

The “tip of the sword” in almost every case is a human being – not a cell phone app or other piece of technology.

The point of care is a doctor, nurse or similar front line member of the clinical team … and lost in all the smoke and mirrors of modern healthcare journalism is an important fact. The people at the point of care are often over-stressed and burned out.

Physician Burnout is an epidemic hidden in plain sight amongst the providers on the front lines.
