Burnout

St Emlyn`s - By Liz Crowe - December 6, 2022
Introduction
The term ‘burnout’ has become ubiquitous within the common vernacular. Yet what do we actually mean when we say we feel burnt-out? 
There are approximately 140 definitions for burnout in approximately 15 000 peer reviewed papers (Hewitt et al, 2020, Hillert et al, 2020) with little consensus for the criteria for symptoms and characteristics of burnout (Bianchi et al, 2019). Commonalities amongst definitions are an acknowledgement that burnout is an occupational experience, it involves psychological and physical exhaustion, burnout has a negative impact on individuals, and it is multidimensional. If we are all referring to burnout with no common understanding, then our desire to create interventions to prevent it become incredibly difficult.
