Theme 3: Doctors’ resilience and health
In this final segment, programs being implemented across Europe to help doctors with stress problems and other mental health issues were presented, along with studies showing the need for such programs. Across the continent, new initiatives to provide support to professionals are emerging. Although they have different characteristics and follow different paths, they all have the final goal of guaranteeing quality care. Especially notable was the lecture by Dr. Debbie Cohen on the results of a program to assist doctors suffering from stress in Wales, or the lecture offered by Dr. Evie Kemp on the “What’s Up Doc?” program organized by occupational health service at Oxford Hospital.
