Presented by Dr. George Garrow, chief medical officer at Primary Health Network

People are under more stress than ever! This is evidenced by an increase in demand for better services that are more efficient, but at the cost of reducing staff and diminishing resources. Burnout is characterized by emotional exhaustion, cynicism and ineffectiveness in the workplace, and by chronic negative responses to stressful workplace conditions. While not considered a mental illness, burnout can be considered a mental health issue. Many professionals bear witness to workplace challenges that range from troublesome to traumatic. As a result, high stress and burnout are major hazards of any profession.
