Physician mothers with extra caregiving at home at higher risk

Yank V et al. JAMA Internal Medicine. 2018 Jan 28. doi: 10.1001/jamainternmed.2018.6411.

Key clinical point: Additional home caregiving responsibilities may increase risk of burnout and anxiety and depression disorders among physician mothers.

Major finding: Risk of anxiety and mood disorders is 21% higher and burnout is 25% higher among physician mothers with extra caregiving at home.

Study details: The findings are based on an online cross-sectional survey of 5,613 United States–based physician mothers conducted from June to July 2016.

Disclosures: No single entity directly funded the study, but the authors were supported by a variety of grants from foundations and the National Institutes of Health at the time it was completed. One coauthor is founder of Equity Quotient, a company that provides gender equity culture analytics for institutions, and another has consulted for Amgen and Vizient and receives stock options as an Equity Quotient advisory board member.
