Burnout is a complex issue and one that you are probably going to see often in health care, among both patients and professionals. Fortunately, a lot of work has gone into discovering ways of protecting against burnout, as well as promoting recovery when it does happen. Self-care – especially maintaining balance in one’s life – is a large part of avoiding burnout. If you think that you or a colleague is displaying signs of burnout, take a moment to use a self-assessment tool. It can be hard to see certain changes in ourselves, so we all need to be on the lookout for each other. If a crisis does come up, the Learner Equity & Wellness staff and PARO helpline are always available to listen and provide support.
