Professional burnout has been described by WHO as a syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. Intensive care unit (ICU) professionals are at high risk of experiencing burnout due to the presence of patients with life-threatening illnesses, the observed discrepancies in job demands, responsibility overload, workload, end-of-life issues, perception of futility and other constituting potential stressors. To talk about the prevalence, outcomes, ethical implications and management strategies of ICU professional burnout we have interviewed Dr. Michalsen. Listen to the interview in the following podcast.
