With physician burnout reported to be widespread and suicides among physicians escalating at an alarming rate, do disasters – both natural and manmade – disproportionately impact the profession?
Show Notes

The tragic events that shocked the nation’s collective conscience on an otherwise peaceful recent Saturday morning call to mind the intersection of physician burnout and post-traumatic stress syndrome.

With physician burnout reported to be widespread and suicides among physicians escalating at an alarming rate, do disasters – both natural and manmade – disproportionately impact the profession? Or are there other conflicts endemic to healthcare that tear at the emotional and mental health of physicians, thus creating a sense of helplessness?

Reporting on our lead story during this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays will be Dr. Tracy Sanson, a practicing emergency physician, consultant, and educator on leadership development and medical education. A national and international speaker, Dr. Sanson also serves as a core faculty member for the American College of Emergency Physicians.
