Recognizing indicators and risk factors for burnout and addressing these issues on systemwide and professionwide levels may help to mitigate professional pressures and improve healthcare provider satisfaction and fulfillment. Mechanisms for coping with professional stress and pressures are imperative for those involved with professional and postgraduate training. The onus for implementing strategies to prevent burnout and for reenergizing pharmacy practitioners in their work lies with employers, institutions, businesses, schools of pharmacy, hospitals, and health systems. The influence of burnout on patient safety and quality of care cannot be ignored and demands attention.
