The purpose of this course is to help participants recognize the characteristics and symptoms of burnout in themselves and in others. By bringing awareness to the signs of burnout, participants will be better able to identify its causes in order to cope effectively and make necessary changes to prevent and overcome burnout. We will discuss the distinction between experiencing stress and burnout, highlighting the severe impact burnout can have both professionally and personally. The course specifically reviews burnout data from the medical field calling attention to burnout contributors and measures that can be taken to increase well-being and job satisfaction.
This course encourages participants to assess their own levels of burnout to gain insight into what their contributing factors may be and what actions can be considered in coping. We will discuss methods in how to prevent and overcome burnout through seeking support and self-care practices. Through understanding the characteristics, causes, impact, prevention tactics and resources related to burnout, our hope is for participants to be equipped with the tools to prevent burnout altogether.
