Is Physician Wellness a Cult?

My eyes popped open this morning when I read this shocking but insightful piece that suggests that physician wellness programs are not only ineffective, but may actually help drive doctors over the edge.

"Health care could accomplish physician retention by reversing the structural issues that continue to burn doctors out: the moral injury, the unsafe working conditions, the throughput-driven and profit-motivated provision of health care, and more.

"But that's hard. Instead, it's easier to keep physicians captive — and that's what the system has chosen. Consciously or otherwise, it employs a tactic used to great effect by other high-control groups such as cults."
