Physician burnout has been associated with increased patient safety incidents. A recent national survey of pediatric residents found burnout rates exceeded 50%. The survey found that risk of burnout was associated with reported stress, sleepiness, dissatisfaction with work-life balance and recent medical error. Burnout rates were lowest among residents reporting empathy, self-compassion, quality of life, and confidence in providing compassionate care.
