The goal of this paper is to present the latest trends and research reports on burnout syndrome among doctors and nurses.

The ability to be fully present with patients is a cornerstone of effective caregiving. Time constraints, a health care system in flux, and political agendas, combined with the stress of overwork and high-pressure work environments of health care professionals, can lead to compassion fatigue, mistakes, and burnout.

It may be particularly useful for family medicine physicians working in a military medical facility, where military rank and traditions are important. A total of 259 anonymous surveys were collected from patients treated at a military family medicine clinic. Most of the patients who completed the survey preferred to shake hands with their provider, be greeted using only their first name, and preferred that the provider introduce themselves using their last name only...
