There is growing evidence of the challenge that burnout poses for everyone in health care. But what is the evidence about the causes of burnout, and how can that be translated into effective solutions? Innovative answers to this challenge need to focus more on how to change critical sources of burnout within the job context, rather than simply helping people cope with the negative effects. These proposed solutions must be implemented and evaluated systematically, in order to establish what are truly the best practices for beating burnout. Such an approach will lead to a better vision of healthy workplaces for health care.
