Take a Break

Earlier this year, we conducted the 2024 HCP Survey, reaching out to our community of 30,000 Canadian healthcare practitioners. Covering various aspects of healthcare practice, we're excited to share some of the insights. 

When asked "Using your own definition of "burnout", please select an option from below that best reflects how you feel (see chart above), Over 55.6% of respondents indicated that they were experiencing at least one or more persistent symptoms of burnout, such as emotional exhaustion and were constantly thinking about work-related issues. 

We've compiled a list of valuable resources available to support and prevent severe burnout - before it happens.
