Burn out

Thanks - this is likely to continue until we, as a profession, focus on
the core problem:  the overtasked physician, asked to do humanly
impossible decisions without effective decision support.  I believe we
will be mired in this problem set unless we target automatic control of
medical tasks (closed loop protocols) with adequately detailed computer
protocols.  This requires a cultural change and recognition that the
Hippocratic model (the expert model) is necessary but by itself
insufficient.  Most of the time I feel as if I am talking to a wall.
Have a nice day and Happy New Year.
