Burnout among Primary Care Providers and Staff in Small to Medium Sized Primary Care Practices: Early Findings from EvidenceNOW

Authors: Samuel Edwards, Miguel Marino, Bijal Balasubramanian, Steele Valenzuela, Rachel Springer, Leif Solberg, Alex Preston, Deborah Cohen

Findings: Burnout is prevalent in small to medium sized primary care practices, but at a lower frequency than seen in prior studies and physicians have only slightly higher levels of burnout than other staff members. Members of solo practices have lower odds of burnout, while clinician panel size, patients seen per week and staffing levels are not associated with burnout, suggesting practice autonomy is a more important determinant of burnout than workload.
