The role of a manager in burnout prevention: from leader to team builder
MetadataShow full item record
Burnout is an emerging topic that has been explored and researched since the 1970s. The concept is not unbeknown to healthcare and becomes a taboo subject interrupting the foundation of clinical practice. Burnout is described to be a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that consequently results in health-related problems, cynicism, and a negative impact on professional identity (Edwards & Dirette. 2010; Thomas & Lankau, 2009). During times of increased job demands and decreased job resources an employee is faced with circumstances that become altering. Consequently, this impacts the quality of care rendered to clients, negative feelings towards oneself, and impaired judgement. Evidence has identified the positive implications supervisory support has with alleviating symptoms and its response to burnout (Salminen et al., 2017). The Burnout Prevention from Leader to Team Builder is a program whose primary audience members are managers in a rehabilitation setting. The program provides evidence-based interventions to raise awareness of the managers role in burnout prevention, the rise of symptoms and interventions that will support prevention in the clinical setting. Through education, the self-paced online program is comprised of six modules that offer managers tools to adapt evidence-based programs in the clinical setting while addressing the components of burnout.
