Peer Support for Clinicians: A Programmatic Approach


This article delves into the burnout epidemic plaguing physicians. The epidemic is caused by prolonged work hours, lack of resources, and demanding documentation. The burnout is also caused by emotionally stressing factors, such as those related to medically adverse incidents. To combat this epidemic, researchers of this article advocate for healthcare organizations to implement support systems that aid physicians’ well-being. In this study, the authors analyzed the effectiveness of a physician peer-support program in the Center for Professionalism and Peer Support at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. They found that this program used various techniques to promote physicians’ well-being, such as engaging in attentive listening and reflection to cope with stress in the workplace.
