NYACP-MedQuest IM Board Review Question and Answer of the week
Message From NYACP President: Louis Snitkoff, MD, FACP
Last week, the Annals of Internal Medicine published a piece titled “Supporting Clinicians During the COVID-19 Pandemic.” Co-authored by four colleagues who have done extraordinary work in the field of physician well-being, the brief article is well worth reading and makes several insightful and salient points:
• Events that disrupt our sense of control lead to increased stress in the short term and increased risk for burnout in the longer term
• The COVID-19 epidemic presents unique challenges due to its enormity and its expected duration
• We must be proactive as clinicians in protecting our well-being and that of our colleagues
• Our organizations must articulate a clear message that clinicians are valued
• Difficult as it may be, our leaders should strive for humane work schedules and a reduction of noncritical work activities
• We must have “safe” environments, in which clinicians can discuss vulnerability and individual needs
• We should freely distribute messages of support and positivity
• We should share our challenges and successes
We have a moral imperative to care for ourselves and our families as well as our patients. Our success in doing so is intrinsic to our survival of this and future crises.
