Apathy and Indifference in Healthcare: When Burnout Becomes Political

Click here to listen to the Podcast Season 2 Episode 1

This episode is about how compassion fatigue and burnout can cause apathy, numbing, and indifference. What happens when we are so burned out we freeze in the face of injustice? We address some of the issues raised by the #blacklivesmatter movement and other healthcare equity topics. 

These are the links to resources we mentioned in the episode:

Systemic Oppression


Racism as a public health crisis
