France's emergency medical workers at high risk of burnout, depression
Issued on: Modified:
Emergency medical staff are back on strike despite new measures announced by France's health minister. Doctors and nurses say the plan fails to resolve the central issue of a lack of resources. Meanwhile, figures show that half of all those who care for others in France suffer burnout or depression over the course of their careers due to – among other reasons – overwork or administrative pressure. Some of these healthcare workers agreed to speak anonymously to FRANCE 24.
