Doctors’ Wellbeing Conference

20th March 2015 at the Central Auditorium at Mater Dei Hospital. This conference was organised jointly between the Medical Association of Malta and the European Junior Doctors. The topic discussed was Doctors’ Wellbeing.

Doctors are not immune to disease, stress and psychological problems. Doctors need to be healthy and well-supported if they are expected to be responsible for patients when they are at their weakest and most fragile moments of their lives. However, “In no relationship is the physician more often derelict than in his duty to himself.” (Sir Osler)
