Presentation of study on the health of paediatricians

This study describes and analyses the results of a survey submitted by 1,028 paediatricians working in clinical medicine in Spain, both public and private. It enjoyed the counsel and support of the Catalan Paediatricians’ Society (Societat Catalana de Pediatria) as well as funding from Laboratoris Ordesa.

The results are presented in eight sections: social and demographic characteristics of paediatricians, family structure and domestic work, occupational situation and professional exercise, habits and lifestyle related to health, health situation, use of health services, medication and preventative measures, and evaluation of professional exercise and relationship with patients. The study also addressed how the economic recession is affecting this group, the patients they serve and their families.
