Recent large-scale surveys of physicians show high numbers of respondents endorsing statements of stress and burnout. This video presentation by an emergency medicine physician examines the quantifiable effects of physician stress on the physician’s physiology and on the patient’s quality of care. Dr. Drill-Mellum emphasizes the responsibility of the physician to actively manage stress and offers strategies and techniques for building resilience.
