Are You a Burned-Out Pharmacist?

Did you know more than 100 pharmacists commit suicide each year?

Pharmacy life can be stressful. As budget constraints and workload increase, demands on pharmacists can create a hectic work atmosphere.

Unfortunately, those problems don’t simply stay at work; they can pour into every area of life and even destroy families.

Did you know more than 100 pharmacists commit suicide each year? Work stress was a contributing factor to many of those suicides.

When I read the research behind those stats, I couldn’t believe it. That’s why I invited Clark Gaither, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Burnout, to join me on Pharmacy Life Radio.

Dr. Burnout and I will look at 5 major topics on burnout in pharmacy and how pharmacists can overcome it. Our first episode is “3 Signs You’re Burned Out,” and it’s an eye opener.
