The objective of the webinar was to get ideas on how to improve the working conditions and lower the level of burnout. The presenters and audience were very helpful in proposing loads of remarks and ideas.
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a prolonged increase in workload and stress among specialists in many healthcare sectors, but this has been particularly noticeable in emergency medicine (EM). A survey carried out by the European Society of Emergency Medicine (EUSEM) among EM professionals in 89 countries showed that 62% of the responders had at least one symptom of burnout syndrome1, and 31.2% had two. Results from the survey are published today in the European Journal of Emergency Medicine2.
The paper shows that the chronic problems faced by EM specialists, such as understaffing, limited resources, overcrowding, and lack of recognition have been greatly exacerbated by the pandemic.
