For example, which is a widely accepted and well-studied disease. Burnout is different and the most common method to recognize burnout is the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI)
NO EXACTLY PHYSICAL 6questionnaire but there is no actual method to diagnose burnout. The web page lists a few signs/symptoms that are compared to depression and signs/symptoms don’t correlate to what depression would be defined as. This topic has received constant attention and the actual phenomenon can be easily confused with another clinical diagnosis. In my opinion this area of nursing requires further research and methods need to be developed to fully understand what burnout is. As humans we are very emotional beings and our environment contributes to how we feel. It’s obvious that our feelings are influenced by individuals we surround ourselves with and our course your career. What contributes to the burnout syndrome and what factors contribute to this idea? In a way, it’s a broad issue with lots of subpoints, but in another way, it’s very simple — nursing is a hard job, and nurses need support (Ermark, 2014).I have had my share of feelingburned out and at times I feel like giving up. I believe this syndrome of burnout occurs more frequently than we think, but unfortunately it is not recognized as a disease and I believe is can be dangerous for nurses who feel burned out. It places patients’ health at risk when having such nurses providing sub optimal health care. The burnout syndrome still requires extensive researchand studies. Methods need to be developed, there must be a standard measurement to recognize the syndrome and if the syndrome is never recognized as a disease, lives are being placed at risk.
