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.
