and its importance as a fundamental component of the doctor-patient relationship.
September 29, 4 p.m. GMT
Globally, about 50% of physicians experience significant burnout. This depletes healthcare resources and compromises the quality of patient care. Of particular concern, a similar proportion of medical students are under such great pressure that they exhaust themselves in the profession before they even enter it. What is the evidence for this? What to do to face this crisis? When will healthcare professionals understand the importance of taking care of each other in the pursuit of better patient care?
Join Mr. Babulal Sethia and Professor Dame Parveen Kumar as they discuss the importance of care, a fundamental part of the doctor-patient relationship.
