(HealthDay)—Provider-reported rates of burnout may be lower in small independent primary care practices than in larger practices, according to a study published in the July-August issue of the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.
Batel Blechter, from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and colleagues analyzed data collected from 235 providers practicing in 174 small independent primary care practices in New York City.
The researchers found that the rate of provider-reported burnout was 13.5 percent. Higher adaptive reserve scores were associated with lower odds of burnout (odds ratio, 0.12) in bivariate logistic regression analysis. The burnout rate was lower than that in past surveys focusing mostly on larger practices.
