Survey: Majority of Physicians Believe Stress Could Impact Patient Care

A new survey from CompHealth, a physician staffing firm, found a majority of physicians are concerned about the impact of professional stress on patient care.

According to the survey, 63 percent of physicians reported being concerned about work quality and patient care due to professional stress.

The study, which surveyed 1,000 U.S. physicians, also found physicians surveyed believe patient care would improve if their peers and they themselves had routine changes to avoid monotony and burnout (45 percent) as well as the opportunity to work on new cases (28 percent).
