The pandemic has caused widespread awareness of burnout experienced by medical workers. Most people, though, don’t realize that burnout was already a critical issue among healthcare personnel. Increased pressure to see ever-greater numbers of patients, 12-hour shifts, and the constant burden of never having enough time ensured that the medical system, especially in hospitals, was already broken.
Dr. Hamid Elmyar, who currently works in the area of public health, digs deeply into this problem. As a doctor committed to unearthing the root causes of illness, he has developed a comprehensive and global approach to the question of whether burnout is reversible. He points out that according to WHO, health is not just merely the absence of disease, it’s the wellbeing of the social, physical, and mental being. According to his thinking, sweeping changes are needed at the individual, institutional, and population levels.
Individuals need to take all possible measures to ensure that they have health at the social, physical, and mental levels. Medical institutions need to stop characterizing burnout as a stigma and make appropriate structural changes at the preventive level. Populations need wider education about the root causes of illness. It’s also important for those not directly associated with the medical situations, such as entrepreneurs, including LNCs, that burnout can occur in any occupation. LNCS, who often assume heavy workloads, especially when they give in to attorney’s excessive demands, are prime candidates for burnout.
For this reason, whether not you are actively engaged in clinical work, this podcast has valuable information for you.
