Dr. Julia Shiner Featured in the Washington Business Journal

The Washington Business Journal recently reported on the critical issue of burnout among healthcare employees. According to a 2021 American Medical Association study, 63% of healthcare workers reported symptoms of burnout. Dr. Julia Shiner, vice president and medical director of employee health and well-being at Erickson Senior Living, was interviewed about the best ways to help combat burnout and support employees. In the article, she describes the more than 1,400 annual well-being visits conducted by Erickson Senior Living’s on-site Employee Health and Well-Being Clinics. 

“During these visits, there is always a discussion of stress and social impacts on health, including how to get support and better manage that stress. ‘This approach includes an awareness of the mind-body connection and the powerful impact that stress can have on the overall health and well-being of employees,’ she said. ‘We recognize the powerful stressors that some employees might be facing outside of work, and at our well-being centers, we have created a unique opportunity for each employee to participate in an annual well-being visit with our [nurse practitioners].’”
