Clinician Job Satisfaction Linked to Improved Burnout Scores

FRIDAY, Oct. 20, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Clinicians' job satisfaction is associated with improved burnout scores and reduced intention to leave their practices, according to a study published in the October issue of Health Affairs.

Mark Linzer, M.D., from Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, and colleagues analyzed data collected from physicians and advanced practice providers in the Healthy Work Place trial at baseline and about one year later to understand how job satisfaction relates to work conditions and outcomes.

The researchers found that 74 percent of respondents indicated job satisfaction at baseline. Satisfaction was correlated with less chaos, more cohesion, better communication, and closer values alignment at work; there was no correlation with higher-quality care or fewer medical errors. Compared with clinicians whose satisfaction did not increase, the respondents who indicated increased satisfaction from baseline to follow-up (16 percent) were almost three times more likely to report improved burnout scores and more than eight times as likely to indicate reduced intention to leave their practices.

"Because improved satisfaction in our study was associated with decreases in burnout and intent to leave among physicians and advanced practice providers, the joy in practice may be of considerable importance to primary care clinicians and their practices," the authors write.
