With over half of today’s physicians reporting symptoms of burnout, it is apparent that our health care system is not fully on the path to achieving the Quadruple Aim.  In order to ensure the health of our nation, it is essential that we support physician well-being.  A healthier physician workforce leads to a healthier population.  

As awareness of physician burnout increases, many are still unclear on the drivers, the impact and solutions for addressing the challenge.  In this 1-hour webinar, attendees will learn about the current landscape of burnout and its impact on our health care system, along with solutions, tools and interventions for change. Presented by Allison M. Winkler, MPH, AMA Senior Practice Advisor, American Medical Association
