BurnOut Prevention and Treatment Program for Medical Doctors and Health Care Providers

Siendo acknowledges the profound responsibility carried by Health Care Providers, and the high prevalence of burn-out. To contribute to the sustainability of their wellbeing, we at Siendo offer complementary therapies, workshops and special discounts directed to support individuals who dedicate their lives to caring for and helping others. The term burn-out was introduced in the early 1970s by the American psychoanalyst professor of German origin Herbert Freudenberge and is defined by the World Health Organization as a psychological syndrome characterized by a state of high emotional exhaustion, high depersonalization and low personal accomplishment, which leads to erosion of personal, professional and health values.

Burn-out has been shown to occur in all kinds of jobs. However, the incidence seems to be higher in Medical Doctors and Health Care Workers. In Portugal one of the latest surveys of the medical population called “Burn-out in Portuguese Healthcare Professionals: An Analysis at the National Level” shows a very high prevalence level, more than 60%! Physician burn-out has been linked to suboptimal patient care, resulting in lower patient satisfaction and impaired quality of care. This may eventually lead to medical errors, with potential malpractice suits and subsequent litigation, with substantial costs for caregivers and hospitals as a consequence. Burn-out syndrome can have many consequences in personal and family life, such as depression, isolation, substance abuse, frictional and broken relationships, and divorce. It is also associated with a high risk of suicide.

Physician/Health Care Worker Support Program


Siendo offers a series of different wellness strategies in order to assist health care professionals in coping with the symptoms of burn-out. These are combined with alternative health practices and techniques to create a tailor-made program for each individual. The combination of mind/body therapies allow for an awareness and appreciation of the importance of self care. The result is a greater sense of purpose, a reconnection with the healing calling, as well as a deeper feeling of peace and well being.

Evidence Based Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine

Fortunately, medical practice has been changing along the last decades into a more horizontal perspective in terms of physician-patient relationship. Nowadays, we are more aware that the patient is a human being, not an illness itself, who is surrounded by many life circumstances. In this way, also with the rise of evidence-based medicine, a growing body of literature has been published approaching integrative medicine’s outcomes. One of the theories for the improved health outcomes is based on the quality of interaction that is enabled between the physician and patient, compared with the conventional medical visits. We aim to continue supporting this practice by providing you the tools for considering a different medical approach, always thinking in the wellness for you and your patients.

Bellow you can find some examples of the growing evidence for integrative medicine practice:

Yoga

Holistic practices for wellbeing and health have been increasing in the western cultures, in which yoga stands as one of the commonest, combining physical movement, breath practices and relaxation. Also, it fosters mindful awareness, contributing to the mindfulness boom practices. In this way, it traces a different path for approaching pain and psycho-emotional conditions in these patients. During the last years, more evidence has been published and beneficial outcomes have been observed with yoga as an adjunctive treatment for patients.

Aromatherapy

As aromatherapy implements essential oils for providing aromatic molecules to the human body that influence the limbic system and transform messages from the hypothalamus, triggering emotional reactions, memories and autonomic responses; its use has been increasing especially for psycho-emotional and sleep disorders, reducing stress with fewer side effects compared to conventional pharmacological therapies, showing good outcomes in this patients. However, evidence with more consistent methodological designs is still needed.

Reiki

Reiki, one of the energy approaches discovered in the late 19th century by Dr. Usui, under the pillar of energy as the basis of everything in the universe, including the human body, tries to balance the energy flow for adjusting those deviations that may lead to diseases. During the last decade, it has increased its use among physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, commonly in hospices, aged care clinics, gynecology and obstetrics clinics, neonatal and pediatric care clinics, rehabilitation units and surgery rooms, especially for pain relief in chronic diseases. It has shown to be effective in reducing pain levels, nonetheless, is still a limited amount of clinical trials and sample sizes.
