Burnout in Young Oncologists
A pan-European survey on the work conditions of Young Oncologists
In 2013, the ESMO Young Oncologists Committee (YOC) is conducting a survey with the objective of understanding the background causes and level of burnout among young oncologists.
We are collecting information, primarily in Europe, on how young oncologists perceive their job situation early in their career, and how it affects both their professional and private life.
We are especially lacking replies from Austria, Cyprus, Georgia, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Luxembourg, Macedonia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland and Spain.
The Young Oncologists Committee feels this is an incredibly important topic which is often ignored. Surveys have been conducted in individual countries previously but this is the first study that addresses medical burnout in oncologists across Europe.
This project is coordinated by Young Oncologists Committee member Susana Banerjee (United Kingdom) and former YOC member, David Olmos (Spain), and we are collaborating with national young oncologists groups in order to help highlight this Europe-wide survey.
We would be grateful if you could help us by answering a short questionnaire (5 –10 minutes), based on a validated tool assessing the level of burnout among healthcare professionals. Your participation is anonymous.
We look forward to receiving your input!
