We recently undertook a survey regarding the attitudes of UK medical schools towards self-care training for medical students. The paper entitled “The Current Status and Attitudes to Self-care Training in UK Medical Schools” was recently published in the Journal of Compassionate Health Care.
The survey revealed some conflicting results, that on the one hand recognised the need for and benefit of self-care training, whilst also not fully recognising the responsibility we have for our own healthcare and the harmful impact of Drs always subjugating their own needs and called for education of medical educators so that they know the true benefit of self-care training.

I welcome your comments, feedback and any queries you may have regarding the paper or the subject.
