If we could assign a greater range of duties or redistribute current workload to physician assistants, would this improve the level of wellness for physicians in general? Clearly, significant physician burnout issues are being documented and anyone can tell that the amount of work is better shared than handled alone. I think one of the ways to counter burnout is to initiate a deeper sense of connection with others around you and going the extra mile for a colleague when your mental radar is sensing him about to or already getting overwhelmed. At times, this can be life-saving. If people can be more willing to look out for one another on the spot of the clinical environment, a more positive attitude and cooperation can be enhanced more than self-help and coping strategies because you are never always working alone in the medical profession.
