LifeBridge Physicians Revitalization Program

Tax deductible
Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to support physician well-being, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause; that means so much to me.

The Jefferson Physicians Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to physicians' health and well-being.

JPF's Board recently funded the Medical Association of Southeast Louisiana's (MASELA) launch of its physician counseling program, LifeBridge Physicians Revitalization Program.

We want to serve more physicians as burnout and stress are increasing. We need to keep physicians in clinical medicine caring for patients throughout the Southeast Louisiana area. This requires resources.

We ask that you consider supporting Greater New Orleans Medical Foundation and its goal to keep physicians healthy. We believe in Healthy Physicians=Healthy Patients & Communities.

The practice of medicine is stressful. Stress is cumulative. Unresolved stress can lead to career dissatisfaction, addiction, illness, disruptive behavior, burnout and death.

“Compassion fatigue” or burnout is a state of mental and/or physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. A 2011 & 2014 Mayo-AMA study shows burnout is increasing (54% of physicians reported suffering from at least one symptom of burnout). In 2021, 61% of physicians often had feelings of burnout, according to the Physicians Foundation.

Burnout can be aggravated by predisposing personality traits and can lead to an increased risk for medical errors and interpersonal conflicts. It is estimated that more than 400+ physicians commit suicide every year.

By having an early intervention program in place, such as LifeBridge, the Physicians Revitalization Program, physician impairment and suicide may be avoided.
