ABSTRACT
Health professionals treating COVID-19 patients have been reported to suffer extreme stress, which can lead to burnout and a reduced capacity to continue work. Physicians and nurses are directly at risk when performing the treatment and care of COVID-19 patients and therefore experience intense stress. This paper highlights the individual, organizational, and social effects of burnout among physicians and nurses due to COVID-19. Moreover, evidence based interventions were discussed to promote a healthy workplace, and to prevent burnout among health professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
