#40 Burnout Through the Eyes of an Occupational Therapist Featuring Erika del Pozo
While the burnout crisis is nationwide and impacts all health professions, most of the evidence reported in the literature is focused on physicians and nurses. There is very little known or understood about the experience of other health professionals.
We are so happy to have Erika del Pozo on the podcast today. Erika is an Occupational Therapist and the Founder and CEO of Joy Energy Time, a media and events company, that offers healthcare professionals content and resources around burnout, stress management, healthcare advocacy, holistic wellness and lifestyle.
In this episode with Erika, she shares with us her personal experience with burnout.
Erika sheds some light on what burnout can look like and feel like as well as some of the internal dialogue that can occur when individuals begin to experience the symptoms of burnout.
We also talk about the influence of the healthcare environment, the role of social support, and advocating for yourself.
We hope you’ll join us for this informative and enlightening discussion.
