The health of resident medical interns: from theory to practice Description: Description: this DVD shows the different realities that resident medical interns experience that generate discomfort at different times in their training. Interns express their perceptions and their own ways of facing the most difficult aspects of this stage. The views of interns are compared with observations by a tutor who contributes a different point of view on internship experiences.
Even though the individuals that appear in this film are actors, the content is based on the real worries and opinions expressed by interns in a focus group created specifically for this DVD. The script also incorporates the contributions of residents and tutors that participated in different editions of the workshops for a healthier professional exercise (within the program on the health of resident medical interns organized by the Fundació Galatea at university health centres).
The goal of this film is to promote a responsible and useful debate that can help interns to:
-Identify and share the difficulties and the causes of workplace stress that they most often have to face.
-Raise awareness among interns regarding the importance of professionals caring for their own health, and provide guidelines about how to do so.
