What Psychiatrists Need to Know About Burnout, Both for Ourselves and Our Patients

Join the WPA Milwaukee Chapter for a complimentary Dinner & Discussion on Psychiatrist Burnout. Presenters H. Steven Moffic, MD and Randall Levin, MD, FACEP-Life will share their thoughts on burnout as a systemic problem that afflicts clinicians who feel themselves trapped in systems that do not seem to honor—and may actively impede—their professional ethical responsibility to care for patients.

He is among the 18 psychiatrists selected to serve on the American Psychiatric Association's ad-hoc Workgroup on Psychiatrist Well-being and Burnout. The group was formed to help facilitate APA’s focus on well-being and burnout by addressing the areas of data, education, resources and communications. The group is working through APA administration and with Councils, Committees and other experts, and is coordinating efforts with the work of allied organizations, including AMA, AAMC, ACGME and NAS to address the issue.
