The next evolution of the Declaration of Geneva


How often do you get the chance to be part of improving the health and wellbeing of EVERY PERSON ON THE PLANET?

When doctors take care of themselves, they practice better medicine. But 87% of doctors are stressed and aren’t taking care of themselves in their desire to put patients first, and this is harming our patients.

The Declaration of Geneva was created to guide our profession to be the best it can be, to provide the best possible care to patients; to truly do this we must acknowledge the need as doctors to care for ourselves.

I propose, in the spirit of putting the patients’ best needs at the forefront, that it is time for an addition to the Declaration of Geneva:

I WILL TAKE CARE of my health and well-being so I can provide care of the highest standard

Lend your voice to this, have our profession formally acknowledge this need, and our entire profession improves which positively impacts the health and wellbeing of everyone on Earth; your voice matters.

    If you want the best treatment, you want doctors who aren’t over-tired or over-stressed- that’s when poor decisions are made.

    Physician well being is a fundamental component of professionalism. Having good mental health means that better health decisions are made for our patients. Every health intervention starts with a conversation. What follows should be effective communication. . The result is shared decision making.

    I concur. However, I have also observed there are private doctors that worked themselves to death by having too many clients.
