Burnout has negative consequences for individuals, organizations, and society overall. Beyond its impact on the physical and mental health of workers, burnout strains organizations and increases turnover, tardiness, absenteeism, and difficulty in retaining staff. Nurses are particularly at risk of experiencing burnout, and the condition is estimated to affect between 35% to 45% of registered nurses in the United States and 9% to 14% globally. Already considered a public health concern, nurse burnout was further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this session, learn to identify burnout, understand common risk factors, and follow the latest evidence of how to address burnout in ourselves and others. Presenter: Carolina Carvalho, Ph.D. candidate, Industrial Engineering
