BITRAN, Marcela et al. Concern for residents’ wellbeing, an issue discussed at the latin american conference on resident education (LACRE) 2017. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2017, vol.145, n.10, pp.1330-1335. ISSN 0034-9887.

At the end of May 2017, the third version of the Latin American Conference on Resident Education, LACRE, was held in Chile; it convened 433 people from 14 regional countries. Chronic stress and emotional exhaustion of residents was one of the topics discussed. Reports from different countries documented that about half of residents suffer from burnout. This is, they are emotionally drained, indifferent towards their patients and with a sense of low personal fulfillment at work. This article describes the contributions presented in LACRE about interventions or institutional programs designed to reduce burnout and promote self-care of residents. The relevance of these initiatives is discussed in the current global context, considering the available evidence on the effectiveness of interventions to promote well-being among residents. International experts are making renewed and eloquent calls to medical educators and organizations to get involved in the solution of the erosion of resident wellbeing during the residence.
