Europe: Burnout is a common problem for young oncologists too

Also caregivers are exposted to burnout.

More than 70% of young cancer specialists in Europe suffer symptoms of burnout. This is the result of a large survey run by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO). The survey reveals that rates of burnout vary across Europe. They are highest in central Europe and lowest in Northern Europe including the UK. Higher risk is developed by those with poor work/life balance and inadequate vacation time. Also personal factors like not being in a relationship, living alone and not having children are risk factors

Also according to ESMO achieving a good work/life balance is vital!
