Healthcare Vitality

This new ECHO Idaho series will launch in April 2024.


According to a 2023 Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality report, healthcare professionals are at-risk for occupational burnout, creating significant negative impacts on behavioral health and well-being. In 2020, 38 percent of physicians in the U.S. reported experiencing burnout. The concern is most acute for women and those under 55 years of age. High levels of burnout are also experienced by other healthcare professionals including nurse practitioners and physician assistants and non-clinical support staff in primary care.

Given ongoing strains to the healthcare system, such as workforce shortages, an aging population with increasingly complex medical needs, the difficulties of providing coordinated care in a fragmented system, and declining financial margins, burnout perhaps should not be surprising.

About the Series

Led by an interdisciplinary panel of well-being experts from Idaho, this series will serve as a platform to share knowledge, support skill development and encourage mutual support to help healthcare teams prioritize well-being.
