Project Well Recharge Retreat December 7-10, 2017

In December 2017, ASPS will host the first-of-its-kind Wellness Retreat targeted specifically at combating the rising epidemic of physician burnout. Different than stress, burnout does not allow a physician to take a few days off to "recharge their batteries." Instead, lifestyle and practice change is ultimately required to return a physician back to peak performance. Burnout has been linked to lower quality of care, higher medical error rates, lower patient satisfaction rates, and higher malpractice risk. This inaugural Wellness Retreat will teach physicians how to design their practice to prevent burnout and what steps to take in order to recover from burnout.
