Health Care Workers at Risk


  • Kornélia R. Lazányi

    () (Budapest College of Communication and Business)


Health-care workers are at extreme risk not only of psychological but somatic disorders as well. Present paper - while presenting the outline of the poor situation of physicians and health-care professionals - strives to enumerate circumstantial factors that induce the probability of negative physical and biological consequences as well as occurrence and extent of burnout. It also aspires to cite all those features that can help diminish these negative outcomes.
