More about burnout
To try and find out more about the causes of burnout and how it might be addressed, the College decided to facilitate an online ‘discussion’ with its members using Polis, a digital tool designed to gather open-ended feedback from large groups. By allowing participants to add their own statements about an issue for others to ‘vote’ on (agree, disagree or pass), it combines qualitative and quantitative methodologies, and is well suited to finding areas of common ground while also identifying differences of opinion. This report includes sections on the factors that GPs believe are causing burnout, and on how GPs think burnout could be addressed. It also includes an assessment of our novel and, as far as we are aware, unique approach to hosting this ‘conversation’ with members.
