Burnout is always a concern in busy urgent care centers. However, with a 46% increase in visit volume and urgent care centers administering 25% of U.S. COVID-19 tests weekly recently, the risk is greater than ever. While you may not be able to singlehandedly end the COVID-19 crisis, you can take steps to provide care for your team. Some of them will be spelled out in an upcoming webinar, Managing Provider Burnout: Tips for Physicians & Staff in the Urgent Care Setting, offered at no charge by Experity and the North East Regional Urgent Care Association. It’s scheduled to take place from 11 am to noon (Central) on Tuesday, December 15 and will be hosted by Susan F. Reynolds, MD, PhD and Alan Ayers, MBA, MAcc.
