Coping Mechanisms for Stress Among Physicians
27 Apr, 3:30 PM
Since 1992, April has been designated as Stress Awareness Month. The modern medical workplace is a complex environment. The sources of stress may range from the emotions arising in the context of patient care to the environment in which doctors practice. As a group, doctors have higher prevalence of depression and burnout than the general population and many other professional groups. Long-term exposure to high levels of stress may have a wide range of consequences for doctors. Dr. Samir Parikh, prominent Consultant Psychiatrist and Director of Fortis Healthcare's Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences, addresses all of these difficulties and offers advice on how to manage stress and establish effective coping mechanisms.
