Burnout may adversely affect patient safety and clinician wellness. This review of studies using the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) found that only four of 11 studies found an association between clinician burnout and observed adverse patient care. The authors recommend further research into the association of burnout and patient safety using the MBI.
