Peds 21- Pediatricians Leading Change in Physician Health and Wellness (C0017)
Physician wellness is key to the future of pediatrics. By caring for ourselves, we cultivate our ability to care for our patients. Yet burnout is prevalent at all career stages, from trainee to retiree. In fact, nearly half of medical students, residents, and practicing physicians report symptoms of burnout. The Pediatrics for the 21st Century pre-conference program “Pediatricians Leading Change in Physician Health and Wellness” will address the relationship among burnout, job satisfaction, quality care, and patient safety. Attendees will leave the session with the skills to implement wellness strategies for themselves, their practice, and their organizations.
