Burnout and compassion fatigue in socialized versus private healthcare systems

Posted by susanthaney on 17 Jun 2013 at 19:58 GMT

Do the results of polling for this data in countries with socialized versus private healtcare systems differ significantly? If so (or if not), why? (or why not?) I would really like to see this survey put to United States physicans, where I think that burnout and compassion fatigue rates may be higher due to stressors related more to the "business of medicine" than to actual direct patient care.
