The British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) has been assessing the negative impact of COVID-19 during doctor appraisals.
In response, BCAM has introduced more resources to its mindfulness initiative, including videos on happiness and mindful exercises.
Dr Paul Myers, the BCAM trustee responsible for revalidation and appraisals, said, “There are many ways in which doctors can find themselves under particular stress or difficulty due to the current situation. This can include the stress of having to deal with COVID patients, having financial problems due to reduced workload, or stress in dealing with difficulties with introducing new infection-control processes into their practices, but these can all be discussed freely under this section.
BCAM has gone a step further by recognising the additional pressure its members are under and providing a variety of resources that they can access.”
