With physician and health professional burn out rising to epidemic levels, Lifestyle Medicine is an essential antidote to treat and preserve physical and mental health and boost resilience for ourselves and our colleagues. This panel discussion will provide an overview of the state of burn out among health professionals and focus on solutions that harness healthy lifestyles, emotional well-being supports, and strategies for leading and modeling well-being in the health care workplace. Medical practitioners’ personal experience with these behaviors can, not only improve self-care, but can also spur engagement in the practice of Lifestyle Medicine to secure improved patient outcomes. Healthy lifestyle approaches, enhanced with positive psychology-based habits, are feasible for busy practitioners, even during challenging times, and in fact, are elements of the framework necessary to ensure the future survival and growth of our professions.
- Examine the state of burn out among physicians and other health professionals.
- Review Lifestyle Medicine and emotional well-being approaches that can treat and preserve the physical and mental health of individuals in the health professions.
- Discuss strategies for leading and role modeling behaviors and environments that support well-being in the health care workplace.
