Burnout Amelioration Consulting

Dr. Shapiro, a clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience treating and working with physicians and executives, has a boutique consulting firm in which he and his team work with hospitals, clinics, and physician groups to assess and ameliorate physician, advanced practice, and nurse burnout.  Assessments focused on GME Residents are also available.

Using validated brief instruments, Dr. Shapiro will assess 1) Burnout (which groups are the most and least burned out in this unit or system? 2) What are the specific systems consequences here? (turnover, safety issues, problems with civility?)          3)  Which factors are the most powerful contributors to burnout here?  4)  Which health behaviors and systems interventions are already working well to ameliorate burnout?.  

Assessments include surveys and focus groups.

The team will provide leadership with a solution focused report outlining areas of the organization that have excellent wellness and those that are struggling including recommendations for practice changes.  Leadership retreats to prioritize recommendaitons,  helping to organize and manage the teams that initiate action oriented improvements, and follow-up pulse surveys are also available.

In 2003 Shapiro published a landmark exploration of a physician’s descent into burnout (Delivering Doctor Amelia, Random House).  He’s also written for the New York Times and spoken on N.P.R’s Talk of the Nation about issues related to physician resilience and wellness.
