This Thanksgiving: Combating burnout through gratitude

As you celebrate Thanksgiving this season, let the people in your life know how much they mean to you. A few simple words of gratitude and compassion can go a long way.

Give yourself credit for all you’ve done for your organization and your patients, and enjoy some well-deserved time off—you earned it!

For this, hospitals will need psychographic models to complete their understanding.
