08:00 EDT 10th May 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "A Growing Epidemic: Plastic Surgeons and Burnout - A Literature Review."

The prevalence of burnout is increasing among all physicians, including plastic surgeons. Burnout is not simply synonymous with being overworked. It is a complex physical, intellectual and psychological entity that arises when the expectation and reality of the job do not match. In this article, our goal is to define burnout, summarize its causes and consequences, and offer the plastic surgeons methods to prevent and address it
METHODS:
: A literature search of articles on burnout in medicine was performed. Articles that were relevant were selected, and were qualitatively analyzed to answer our questions on the definition, prevalence, causes, consequences and treatments of burnout.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Published materials which provide an examination of recent or current literature. Review articles can cover a wide range of subject matter at various levels of completeness and comprehensiveness based on analyses of literature that may include research findings. The review may reflect the state of the art. It also includes reviews as a literary form.

An article or book published after examination of published material on a subject. It may be comprehensive to various degrees and the time range of material scrutinized may be broad or narrow, but the reviews most often desired are reviews of the current literature. The textual material examined may be equally broad and can encompass, in medicine specifically, clinical material as well as experimental research or case reports. State-of-the-art reviews tend to address more current matters. A review of the literature must be differentiated from HISTORICAL ARTICLE on the same subject, but a review of historical literature is also within the scope of this publication type.
