Abstract: Burnout is recognised as a significant occupational hazard for medical professionals. For graduate trainees, across various medical specialties, there is growing evidence burnout results in personal harm and reduces the quality of patient care. Rehabilitation medicine, with its challenge of emotional exhaustion bought about by greater involvement in patient psychosocial well-being over a prolonged period, is significantly under-represented in research into burnout prevalence, impact and prevention strategies. We argue the lack of any evidence base in the Australian healthcare context negatively impacts the ability of training organisations to appropriately support trainees experiencing burnout.
