OCHIN Grand Rounds: Burnout in Primary Care - Results from EvidenceNOW
Workplace burnout, typically defined as the combination of emotional exhaustion, detachment, and feelings of ineffectiveness, is prevalent in primary care, and associated with negative consequences for clinicians, staff and patients. EvidenceNOW, the largest quality improvement project funded by AHRQ, is focused on the dissemination of evidence-based practices for heart health in small to medium sized primary care practices. Through EvidenceNOW, ESCALATES has collected survey data from over 10,000 primary care practice members in over 1700 practices in 12 states, providing one of the most comprehensive examinations of practice level drivers of burnout conducted to date.

Deborah Cohen, PhD, is a Professor and Vice Chair of Research in the Department of Family Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University. She is an expert in qualitative and mixed methods research with more than 20 years of experience, and has spent more than a decade studying primary care practices, with a focus on clinician-patient communication, practice implementation, change and improvement, and health information technology use.

Samuel Edwards, MD, MPH is a primary care physician, general internist, and health services researcher at the Veterans Affairs (VA) Portland Health Care System and an Assistant Professor of Medicine and a Research Adjunct Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University.
