Why working in pharmacy can pre-dispose you to stress/burnout and what you can do about It
The RPS Wellbeing Survey last year indicated that 90% pharmacists were at high or very high risk of burnout. Whilst there are many services available to pharmacists who are experiencing burnout, there is little focus on prevention and understanding why stress and burnout are such an issue within pharmacy, in the first place. It is the very nature of the job that can predispose us to feelings of stress, overwhelm and burnout.
Harpreet is a former national level pharmacist who struggled with stress, burnout and depression but has now made a full recovery and has dedicated her life to helping others in the profession from succumbing to the same. This is pharmacy wellbeing like you've never seen before and are likely not to see again! Honest, brutal, hard-hitting but overall really helpful!
