Throw a lifeline to struggling colleagues
It can be difficult to notice a struggling colleague when you feel like you’re barely staying above water yourself. We must look out for each other.
Quick tip: Changes in attitude or personality are a signal that a colleague is struggling to stay afloat. Physicians who are burned out often become cynical, rushed, and indifferent or lack empathy for their patients.
If you are faced with a partner or team member you think is struggling reach out. Consider recommending our excellent EAP program where they can be connected with one of our Physicians-For-Physicians (P4P) Program mentors. If you are interested in becoming a mentor in the P4P program reach out to our Chief Wellness Officer at [email protected]
