Tools to help prevent and manage burnout

The Burnout Task Force developed this toolkit to help physicians, residents and trainees

Stress is a normal human response, and it might actually help us function during difficult times. The important thing is to manage it effectively so that stress does not become distress. If you are experiencing burnout, you are not alone. The supports in this toolkit, which are organized by Dr. Mamta Gautam’s 5 Cs of resilience — control, commitment, connections, calming and care for self — can make a difference.
