Risk of burn-out among medical staff

A study of medical staff in Belgium has found that work pressure and high levels of emotional exhaustion are having a negative impact on staff working in hospitals. Around 60% of the medical staff said they felt engaged by their work, and they appreciated support from colleagues. However, 18% of nurses and 13% of doctors said they felt at risk of ‘burn-out'. They did not single out one single aspect of their work as the cause, but said they were under pressure generally and blamed conflict over the division of labour.
