    Course Description
    The majority of professions in the healthcare industry, as well as those that revolve around providing care in general, are typically subject to a great deal of stress and anxiety, which often results in employee burnout. Burnout syndrome encompasses a variety of mental and emotional characteristics, which may eventually lead to the employee withdrawing from their work environment and from those to whom they provide care. Individuals may also experience a lack of empathy, increased hostility, which sometimes leads to resignation. Given the fast pace and workload of today's imaging facilities or radiology departments, radiologic technologists (RTs) also suffer from burnout in large numbers. RTs who are affected by burnout also affect their coworkers, other staff members, as well as the patients they work with and treat. Being able to recognize the symptoms of burnout and work within themselves to address it can benefit not just the individual but the entire healthcare team. This course will define and discuss various aspects of burnout syndrome, and how they impact not only the RT but also the radiologist and other healthcare team members. It will also address how different personality traits and personal circumstances may lead individuals to experience burnout more readily than others. Finally, healthy coping strategies and ways to remedy or prevent burnout all together will be outlined.

    Learning Objectives
    After completing this course, the participant should be able to:

    • SUMMARIZE the history, definition, and the 3 domains of burnout syndrome.
    • OUTLINE the causes of burnout syndrome and how to decipher if someone is at risk.
    • EXPLAIN how burnout affects the radiological imaging department or imaging facility.
    • IDENTIFY treatment options for radiologic technologists and other members of the healthcare team who are experiencing burnout syndrome.
