Burnout is measured by the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), which defines it as a combination of three factors:
- high emotional exhaustion
- high depersonalisation
- low personal accomplishment
In a BMJ Open paper, on GP burnout, our of 564 doctors, 46% had high levels of emotional exhaustion, 42% had high levels of emotional exhaustion and 32% had low levels of personal accomplishment.
However, interestingly, the study showed despite doctors suffering from burnout, that this did not have a negative effect on patient care or increase patient dissatisfaction.
Is burnout an inevitable part of being a doctor? Is it more emotional exhaustion than the feeling of low accomplishment or depersonalisation?
