Combatting Burnout In General Practice
de Euan Lawson e Adam 1 Staten
Sobre o livro
This is the first book to explore the impact of 'burnout' on the current NHS GP workforce and how this can be addressed, from an insider GP perspective. Adam Staten, recently qualified GP, and Euan Lawson, Fellow of the RCGP with over 20 years experience, discuss in engaging, accessible chapters how burnout manifests psychologically, the complex reasons why GPs burn out and the individual and broader impact this can have. Most importantly, the book offers practical advice on how to avoid burning out and combat the negative effects of an increasingly high-pressure role, exploring how GPs can develop resilience and work in a way that builds a healthier work-life balance. A section is dedicated to the array of GP job options, with testimonies from practitioners working in diverse areas from education and academia to military and humanitarian settings. This book explores the challenges of working in general practice today, but it also demonstrates the potential for every GP to experience a personally and professionally satisfying career. Providing practical, workable advice and links to resources for help and support, the book enables readers to find opportunity within the perceived 'crisis'. By reading this book, you will find the means to improve not just your own working life but also to enhance the way you deliver care to your patients.
