    • Abstract:
      Burnout syndrome may affect >50% of physicians and is characterized by feelings of emptiness and negative attitudes towards work and life. The work of surgeons presented some specific causal factors that determine that the physician (as a professional) can "burn out" and suffer from this disease with the consequent social/laborial impact, affecting also the rest of the surgical service. These may include external factors linked to the health organization or to internal factors that are directly dependent on the type of work performed by the hospital surgeon. This paper analyzes these causal factors of burnout and offers some simple coping strategies in order to improve the health of professionals. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract:
      El síndrome de burnout puede afectar a más de 50 % de los médicos y se caracteriza por sentimiento de vacío y actitudes negativas hacia el trabajo y la vida. La actividad laboral de los cirujanos presenta factores causales específicos que determinan que el profesional pueda padecer esta enfermedad, con la consiguiente repercusión sociolaboral y para el resto del servicio. Estos factores pueden ser externos, ligados a la organización sanitaria, o internos, que dependen de la actividad laboral del cirujano en el hospital. En este trabajo se analizan dichos factores causales de burnout y se proponen algunas estrategias de afrontamiento para mejorar la salud de los profesionales. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
