“It was only a few months in where I thought, no human can really keep this pace: new evidence coming in every day and all of us trying to stay on top of it and give the best advice; the pace of meetings and press conferences, and evidence-based decisions, and the weight of these types of decisions.” – Dr. Catherine Elliott

In this episode, host Dr. Caroline Gérin‑Lajoie speaks with Dr. Elliott about what causes moral distress among public health physicians and recent survey results from the Public Health Physicians of Canada showing high rates of burnout among its members.
