WHAT IS BURNOUT?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) International Classification of Disease 11th Edition defines Burnout as:

It occurs in organizational cultures that demonstrate

  • Unfair treatment of the employees 

  • Unmanageable work loads for employees

  • Unclear communication from managers

  • Lack of manager support

  • Unreasonable time pressures on employees.

"

...a syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterised by three dimensions:

    - feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;

    - increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism

      related to one's job; and

    - reduced professional efficacy.
