BLUFIn this article, Professor Parker disagrees with the World Health Organisation's definition of burnout as being the result of chronic workplace stress that has not been properly managed.
This article by Anna Kelsey-Sugg and Joanna Crothers, writing for ABC-Australia, reports Professor Parker's opinion about burnout; some of the points made are:
- Burnout is not simply a synonym for exhaustion, nor is it only relevant in the workplace.
- The condition commonly manifests in those with demanding domestic roles, such as caring for children or elderly parents.
- Parker's research shows that burnout is over-represented in caring roles, such as health professionals and teachers.
