Responding to crisis
Healthcare is in crisis, all around the world. Too many health professionals are feeling stressed, overworked, tired, and heading for burnout. And the deteriorating working conditions are doing great harm to patient care too.
The sheer pace of work, the overwhelming workload, the staff shortages, and the increasing use of technology, mean that too often the basic human needs of patients are neglected.
