Physicians’ perspectives about burnout: a systematic review and metasynthesis
Systematic search for qualitative studies reporting doctors’ perspectives on burnout. Two themes emerged from the analysis: (1) stress factors promoting burnout-ranked as organizational, then contextual and relational, and finally individual-factors and (2) protective factors, which were above all individual but also relational and organizational. Doctors identify numerous organizational factors as originators of potential burnout, but envision protecting themselves individually.
