A recent survey suggested that more than half of physicians in the United States have symptoms of burnout. This study examined multiple interventions aimed at improving work conditions for primary care physicians. Approximately 22% of intervention physicians showed improvements in burnout, compared to only 7% of those in the control group. Workflow interventions and targeted quality improvement projects led to fewer reported burnout and stress symptoms, while communication initiatives were associated with enhanced clinician satisfaction.
