Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other health care professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

Professional burnout is common among health care professionals and may have significant impact on patient care. Identifying and preventing burnout as well as promoting resilience is important for personal well-being, and for patient safety. Early career clinicians may be more likely to be affected by burnout, so recognition of burnout in students and residents is an important skill for pharmacy educators, including preceptors. This session will focus on identifying risk factors, how to mitigate burnout in ourselves and our trainees as well as discuss the stigma surrounding seeking treatment for the symptoms of burnout.
