For the first time, WHO recognises burnout as a medical condition

May 28, 2019 11:13 IST

'Burnout' is now an official medical diagnosis, according to the World Health Organisation's International Classification of Diseases. The WHO defines burnout as a "syndrome resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not successfully been managed". The decision was taken at the World Health Assembly in Geneva. It has three dimensions according to the WHO, which include feelings of exhaustion, feelings of negativity and reduced professional efficacy.
