Hola a tod@s, my dear friends.

We keep talking about in the same way that yesterday (thank you so much, more than 1.600 page views to the post about ratios). It´s very important to care the care provider.

Today we want to share an article recently published in Critical Care: Physician burnout: can we make a difference together?.

Despite being a widely known and prevalent topic (one of every three doctors have any related symptoms, especially the intensivists and nurses), barely there are studies that propose interventions to resolve the problem.

To do this, the authors carried out a randomized clinical trial in the Department of Medicine of Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

They created discussion groups facilitated by the institution and biweekly for 9 months and conducted various workshops involving elements of mindfulness, reflection, shared experiences and study small groups.


This protocol increased the satisfaction of professionals, improved meaning and engagement in work and reduced depersonalization. These findings were consistent one year later. We continue looking for roads, becauuse if we want different results we have to do different things. No one will be made by us.

Happy Wednesday,
