      This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief. A critical error was discovered in how the MBI score was tabulated in the 2016 analysis. This resulted from an inadvertent error in the coding of survey scores. Specifically, the MBI is comprised of 22 questions, with responses recorded on a 7-point Likert scale ranging from 0 to 6. However, the database for the research stored the MBI responses as values between 1 and 7. This necessitated subtracting a value of 1 from all MBI items before scoring the questionnaire. This was not done and resulted in overestimation of the prevalence of burnout. To address this, the authors have submitted a revised manuscript and that revision has been accepted as a replacement for the original paper DOI:10.1016/j.jpainsymman.2019.11.001
