Portfolio Description

The critical times that we are facing has resulted in an unprecedented health crisis and created a huge psychological burden for healthcare professionals, who continuously battle against this global emergency. Extreme work pressure and excessive workload are only some of the factors that pose a significant threat to physicians’ mental health, increasing the risk for anxiety, depression and severe burnout. High levels of stress and emotional exhaustion, especially among hospital providers, can adversely impact patient care and their overall well-being.
