Join us in this interesting seminar, by our external speaker Dr Judith Johnson from the University of Leeds, around staff burnout and patient care.
Around a quarter of UK doctors are experiencing burnout and broader workforce surveys suggest that stress has been steadily increasing in NHS staff since 2010. Eighteen thousand staff left in 2018-19 citing poor work-life balance as their main reason compared with around 8000 in 2012-13; over a two-fold increase. In addition to contributing to the current workforce crisis, elevated stress and burnout has implications for patient care. This talk will present recent studies exploring the nature and strength of the relationship between staff burnout and patient care and will consider the mechanisms underlying this link. It will also consider potential routes forward, questioning whether a conceptual shift is needed in the worlds of research and practice. Finally, the controversial issue of staff ‘resilience’ will be considered and results from a recent resilience-building intervention will be presented.
