“Burnout; why is the intensity of the flame worsening, despite increasing research and awareness?”

Dr. Damian McHugh

two-way discussion about “why is the data-do gap getting worse”. We have known about burnout for 40+ years, so why is it now critical in medicine – and law, in our military, animal vets and teachers?

This article will be a nice compliment to the discussion. 

Dr. Damian McHugh bio:

Proud father of two hungry teens, eager (but still poor) golfer, husband of Marion – trauma nurse turned travel nurse consultant, I graduated Med School in 1990 at Manchester UK. Having become a member of the Royal College of GPs, I swerved specialties and changed countries. Having repeated a full EM Residency at UNC, I spent 21 wonderful years at the Rex ER in Raleigh.

Since ending my clinical practice, I’ve been afforded the privilege of walking the back 9 of my career as SVP Physician Liaison at Curi, a full-service physician advisory firm headquartered in Raleigh. Each day that I wake, I’m driven to discover how better our company (which is owned by its 14,000+ member physicians) can make their lives better in Medicine, Business and Life.

I’m passionate about burnout, having seen so many colleagues brought to their knees by a complex medical system that so often appears to place dollars ahead of patients and their providers.
