    Addressing Race-based Algorithms in Medical Care

    by Marcus Boggis | 05/27/2021

    by Pat Folcarelli, RN, PhD, CRICO | 03/31/2021

    by David Y. Ting, MD, FACP, FAAP | 06/05/2018

    Part 1:  Defining the Problem

    It has been well-documented that 30–65 percent of physicians in the United States exhibit signs of burnout, and unfortunately the trend is increasing.
