In a health care climate where patients are ever more demanding and resources increasingly difficult to access, it is a truism that stress is an inevitable part of the profession of the medical practitioner. Stressed doctors become ill and dissatisfied, and in consequence patients may also suffer. Eliminating a source of stress is acknowledged as the most effective approach to stress control, but this is not always a realistic option for doctors. This invaluable guide shows doctors how to effectively manage their stress, before they become distressed. The authors also acknowledge that doctors do not work in a social vacuum, and address the management, business and social positions doctors are expected to fulfill, in addition to their clinical role. "De-stressing Doctors: a Self-management Guide" will help every doctor to become their own stress manager by integrating stress control techniques into the day-to-day profession of medical practitioner.
