Hall LH, Johnson J, Watt I, et al. PloS one. 2016;11:e0159015.

Many experts have raised concerns that increasing clinician burnout will hinder patient safety. This systematic review found that poor well-being and burnout in health care workers were associated with worse patient safety outcomes. The authors suggest that improving well-being at work for health care staff should be a part of patient safety efforts.
