Part One : Vocational Burnout in Health Workers and Its Preventive Methods

Vocational burnout has been studied extensively during recent years.
Emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a reduced feeling of personal accomplishment are the main clinical features in this syndrome.

 

It has been claimed that it affects up to 40% of doctors and others health workers at a level sufficient to affect their personal well being or professional performance. W.H.O. has documented a well established article on this subject in its publication "Primary Prevention of Mental, Neurological and Psychological Disorders".

This paper is a Persian translation of this article, with other data have been added from Online.
