A happy, long-lasting career in healthcare requires more than just mental fortitude.
Far too often, you hear of colleagues leaving healthcare; they’re burnt out, their work stress has crept into their home life, and they just need some respite. Meanwhile, their responsibilities are dispersed amongst the remaining team, and the cycle is perpetuated by the added work, lack of resources, and feelings of inadequacy.
