Job Burnout in Intensive Care

Burnout is not a medical diagnosis but is a multifaceted syndrome consisting of exhaustion, depersonalisation and reduced accomplishment.

It is a chronic state of being tired, cynical, and discouraged and is in many ways the opposite to feeling engaged with work. Burnout is a response to the social and work environment and it is an occupational phenomenon (ICD-11).
