    Burnout Syndrome

    Wednesday, April 11
    3pm-4pm ET

    Stress in the healthcare profession has reached epidemic proportions. Burnout Syndrome (BOS) is on the rise, with over half of doctors and a third of nurses experiencing at least one symptom. Caregivers across the healthcare continuum all too often live with undiagnosed BOS. But this goes beyond practitioners—patients and individuals who are high achievers in the workplace or academic environments may also struggle with chronic physical and emotional fatigue.

    In this conversation with Nancy Gahles, DC, CCH, MBSR and Lorraine Gahles-Kildow, PhD learn more about:
    Who is at risk for BOS
    The signs and symptoms of BOS
    The evidence-based/informed interventions for BOS across the spectrum
    Interventions available for BOS
