As a long-term stress reaction characterized by depersonalization, emotional exhaustion, a feeling of decreased personal achievement and a lack of empathy for patients, burnout exacts a distressingly high toll.
The American College of Radiology cares about your well-being and has developed the ACR Radiology Well-Being Program to help. All ACR members, including residents/fellows and medical students, receive free access to the following:
This project began as a result of the ACR’s desire to go beyond well-being resources for the individual and investigate what well-being means to the radiology community. We wanted to better understand the drivers of burnout at departments and practices around the country. Moreover, we wanted to know how radiologists would fix the problems that cause poor well-being. We found that the well-being needs were different for all, and their solutions (real and imagined) were equally unique.
How would you fix burnout at your practice? Share your ideas, and we may add them to the website.
