Personal Resilience: An Interventional Strategy to Reduce Clinician Burnout

Clinician burnout is a common problem in modern medicine. Depersonalization, a sense of a loss of autonomy, and emotional exhaustion are all contributing factors. Medical burnout has a detrimental effect on a clinician's capacity to deliver exceptional patient care. Poor conduct, mental illness, despair, drug and alcohol addiction, suicidal thoughts, and death by suicide are all signs of clinician burnout. Given the detrimental effects of clinician burnout, it's important to know what preventative measures are readily available to counter this phenomenon. Through the administration of 10 researcher-developed interview questions, this study aimed to investigate personal resilience as an interventional technique to lessen clinician burnout through the lived experiences of clinicians who self-identified as burned out.
