First Do No Self Harm PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

First Do No Self Harm free pdf Keeping doctors happy and productive requires a thorough understanding of the systemic causes and consequences of physician stress, as well as the role of resilience in maintaining a healthy mental state. The pressure of making life-or-death decisions along with those associated with the day-to-day challenges of doctoring can lead to poor patient care and communication, patient dissatisfaction, absenteeism, reductions in productivity, job dissatisfaction, and lowered retention. This edited volume will provide a comprehensive tool for understanding and promoting physician stress resilience. Specifically, the book has six interrelated objectives that, collectively, would advance the evidence-based understanding of (1) the extent to which physicians experience and suffer from work-related stress- (2) the various manifestations, syndromes, and reaction patterns directly caused by work-related stress- (3) the degree to which physicians are resilient in that they are successful or not successful in coping with these stressors- (4) the theories and direct evidence that account for the resilience- (5) the programs during and following medical school which help to promote resilience- and (6) the agenda for future theory, research, and intervention efforts for the next generation of physicians.
