MN3-30: Burned out in Transfusion Medicine: How to Keep Cool and Carry on?


Oct 21, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Oct 21, 2019 3:30pm

Description

Mental and physical burnout is a pervasive problem in the working population of the United States. In particular, a national survey of physicians conducted in 2018 demonstrated that 63.0% of pathologists consider themselves burned out. This is second after hospitalists, which had 66.0% of their physicians feeling the same way. Despite many individuals feeling out of balance, there is a lack of direction on how to deal with this issue, both from an individual and leadership perspective. 

This session will be an interactive, panel-led session, which will focus on this issue in transfusion medicine and apheresis. Given that the clinical demands of transfusion medicine and apheresis personnel are often administratively misunderstood, this session will include perspectives from medical technologists, apheresis nurses, and physicians from all stages of their career. We will review the symptoms, the causes, and the undesirable consequences of burnout. In addition, we will explore tools for reducing burnout and achieving a better work-life balance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss symptoms, causes, and undesirable consequences of burnout.
  • Examine tools for reducing burnout in the workplace.
  • Review methods for establishing work-life balance.

Speaker(s):

  • Tina Ipe, Houston Methodist Hospital
  • Erin Meyer, DO, Executive Medical Director of Clinical Services, Nationwide Children's Hospital
  • Lawrence A. Williams, Department of Pathology, University of Alabama at Birmingham; UAB
