Emergency medicine is known to be a high-stress specialty. Work related stress and burnout have repeatedly been theorized to negatively impact physician-patient interactions, collaboration between healthcare professionals, team morale and ultimately overall physician mental and physical health.
Considering the detrimental effect of burnout on emergency physicians, we are undertaking a project to describe the level of burnout in Emergency Physicians across Canada.
We need your help. If you are interested in completing a survey regarding burnout in Emergency physicians Canada we are asking that you click the link below and provide your email address. Once we have created a roster of physicians willing to participate we will send an invitation to complete the survey with the survey link. Only the study team will have access to your information. Electronic information will be stored on an network drive at London Health Science Centre and will be destroyed after 15 years.
The survey will be anonymous and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. All responses are confidential and only aggregate data will be shared, no individual responses will be released.
Please feel free to share this invitation with any Emergency Medicine physicians who may not have received it through CAEP membership or social media. We are hoping to get input from as many Emergency physicians as possible to accurately describe the burnout rates across the country.
Should you require any further information, please feel free to contact: Dr. Rod Lim (Rod.Lim@lhsc.on.ca) or Kristine Van Aarsen (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 519-685-8500 ext 76089.
Thanks for participating in this important initiative!
