Greetings from the Medical Staff Wellness Committee
We all experience symptoms of burnout at some point or other during our career, whether or not we recognize it. We offer the Legacy Medical Staff Wellness Committee to our providers as a resource and support.
The stress and strains within our profession is serious stuff. We know that burnout affects your performance, increases requests to work part-time and, in some cases, to leave medicine completely. We are even familiar with suicide by colleagues.
It is your stories that motivate our efforts. We are a group of medical staff members from each hospital committed to decreasing burnout and improving wellness for Legacy providers. We have developed a wellness site on the Legacy Portal for our medical staff members. It includes resources, research, CME/events, activities and information about our committee members.
We have also created a list of crisis resources for providers.
