HOLD THE PRESSES - please tell me why this is not Front Page News?

BMJ study of correlation between U.S. MORTALITY DATA and ELECTION DATA from 2001 to 2019

KEY FINDING:
"People in counties that voted for Republican presidential candidates were more like to die prematurely than those in counties that voted for Democratic candidates, and the gap has grown six-fold over the last two decades."

Employee physicians are on a tilted playing field and physician burnout is the result

Why are 40 - 50% of our colleagues are suffering from at least one symptom of burnout as they walk in to work today?

How does healthcare tolerate this epidemic among the providers of care? BTW, that number will be the same tomorrow, next week and next month. It has been the same for the last decade - and somehow we manage to never talk about it.

How can burnout be "normal" in physicians these days? 


There must be some sort of fundamental mismatch somewhere. Something just has to be out of alignment ... something way down deep in the system ... right?
