Know more about burnout

Burnout Syndrome , often called burnout, is a state of physical and mental exhaustion that is related to occupational activity and that arises in contexts of professional stress –– either because of problems in professional relationships or because of work overload. It was introduced in the “International Classification of Diseases – 11” in a new category (Z73.0) and is now a legitimate clinical category with scientific validity and extensive literature supporting primary and secondary prevention and treatment interventions.

It can be confused with depressive episodes and other psychiatric diagnoses and are thus essential: (1) an early medical and psychological assessment as well as, if diagnosed, (2) reduce or stop the causative factor of Burnout for a period and (3) start an integrated lifestyle intervention that includes changes in diet, hydration, sleep-wake cycle and activity, exercise and optimization of the way of working.

Burnout can occur due to several factors that result from the stress inherent in the professional activity, such as professional conflicts between peers or with supervisors, overwork, changes in professional responsibility, feeling of worthlessness or non-recognition of their qualities and skills, or even by the conjunction of personal problems that end up being transported to work.
The SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic determined several stressors that added to (or precipitated on) the pre-existing ones. These include the continuous uncertainty and personal and professional instability about the future, which contrasts with the usual catastrophes that normally allow the subject to feel a before and an after for which he/she reorganizes.

The suppression of usual activities and psychosocial interaction with family and friends, with increased sedentary lifestyle and involuntary isolation that led to restlessness, anxiety and/or loneliness. The promotion of telework that allowed the invasion of the private sphere by the public / social sphere, reducing the feeling of pause at home, also making the barrier that allows you to interrupt professional activities and relax in your private space more tenuous. There is evidence that Burnout particularly affected the Portuguese population and it is a concern to find forms of primary and secondary prevention.

The results of the study “Mental Health in Times of Pandemic (SM-COVID19)” indicate that about 25% of participants experience moderate to severe symptoms of anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress.
Coordinated by the Department of Health Promotion and Prevention of Non-Communicable Diseases of the National Institute of Health Doctor Ricardo Jorge, in collaboration with the Environmental Health Institute of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon and the Portuguese Society of Psychiatry and Mental Health, the The SM-COVID19 study aimed to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health and well-being of the general population and health professionals, taking into account dimensions such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, burnout and resilience, among others.
According to the results of this work, in the general population, it is mainly young adults and women who present symptoms of anxiety and moderate to severe depression.

Among health professionals, and as expected, it is mainly those who are treating patients with Covid-19 who have moderate to severe anxiety (42%), and it is still in this group of individuals that the levels of Burnout (exhaustion) physical and emotional) are higher (43%). With regard to expectations regarding the future after the pandemic, most individuals are concerned about not knowing when there will be an effective treatment or vaccine (89%) and the possibility of the country entering a very serious economic crisis (96 %). Participants also reported concern with the fact that they were not able to recover the income they had before the pandemic (75%) and with the fact that their way of life was not going back to the same way it was before (79%). .
Despite this, more than 40% of the total respondents to the SM-COVID19 study feel optimistic about the future.

Burnout Syndrome can present with the most varied number of symptoms, the ones described below being frequent and thus paradigmatic. Note that their presentation is fluid – that is, symptoms of mood instability and later irritability may initially appear, and also only later manifest with exhaustion. For the different “phases” of the Burnout Syndrome, all the promoting and protecting factors compete and as such it is possible to improve and worsen over the days and weeks.
