Abstract

Epidemiology and factors affecting resident's burnout at the emergency department: a systematic review Emergency medicine is a highly stressful field of medicine, with emergency department physicians exhibiting some of the highest rates of burnout, anxiety, and other stress-related conditions. This results in a decrease in quality of life of emergency health professionals and negatively affects the care of the patients. Six databases were searched using specific search terms. We included studies that assessed the prevalence and risk factors for burnout in emergency health professionals, or those that included proposed steps to address the issue. The studies were assessed for the quality of evidence using the National Institute of Health software utility. Twenty-one studies were found that met all inclusion criteria. A detailed review of these confirmed a high prevalence of burnout in emergency healthcare but evidenced that factors such as location influenced the overall values. It also evidenced a correlation between burnout and quality of patient care. Emergency physicians need more practical intervention to decrease burnout and stress as these silent diseases are highly prevalent among physicians and affect the patients' care.
