Overview

Physicians, nurses, and all healthcare professionals inevitably face challenging truths during the course of providing care to patients. Dealing with patients and their families while performing your job can be stressful, but it is a part of healthcare. Knowing the warning signs and learning strategies to help mitigate these situation can ensure greater patient satisfaction. 

Mounting emotional and psychological stress can lead to unsafe practices, near misses, and potentially lower levels of care for patients. It’s important that healthcare professionals learn strategies and are given the resources they need to ensure their patients receive the best care possible under any circumstance. Through self-care techniques, providers can mitigate potential stressors that lead to unsafe practices.
