Burnout or Burndown? How to Support Health Professionals

In this episode, we hear from Dr. Ali Tayyeb, a registered nurse and Assistant Professor at California State University, Los Angeles. Dr. Tayyeb is also a United States Navy veteran who specialized in combat trauma and is host of the podcast, RN Mentor. 

When discussing his views on the impact of burnout, Dr. Tayyeb uses the word “burndown” instead. Dr. Tayyeb explains that the term “burnout” implies that healthcare professionals instigate through their personal actions, whereas the term “burndown” focuses on systemic issues embedded in the healthcare field.
