National Survey Finds Primary Care in Crisis

At the 2-year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic, primary care clinician burnout is at an all-time high, and primary care practices—those still open—are facing staff shortages and an influx of new patients with unmet needs. Despite these challenges though, primary care clinicians are still ensuring that patient needs are prioritized.

These were just a few of the findings from the latest national survey of primary care clinicians conducted by the Primary Care Collaborative in partnership with the Larry A. Green Center. A total of 847 clinicians responded to the survey, conducted February 25 to March 1, 2022. In the slides below, find additional survey results at-a-glance.
