Session presented on Thursday, September 25, 2014: Abstract: It is easy for health care professionals to take care of others yet neglect themselves. Long hours, moral conflict, workload, outside of work drama, coworkers and a list of other stressors makes it easy to fall victim to stress. The first goal is to acknowledge that it exists and that it is affecting the overall quality of life including health, attitude, sleep, and overall well-being. Continuous chronic stress can cause physical health problems and may lead to death. It is important for individuals to acknowledge and become more informed on those things that trigger stress. Health care professionals need to get involved in teambuilding activities inside and outside of the workplace in order to minimize stress on the job.
