Find Work-Life Balance: ASA Wellness Resources

Wellness work life balanceAnesthesiologists make life-and-death decisions every day, often in very difficult emergency situations and for long shifts at a time. The resulting stress can take its toll over time, resulting in difficulty sleeping, lack of appetite, clinical depression and other serious issues.

In 2007, ASA established “Health and Wellness in Action,” an initiative with the goal of helping anesthesiologists stay healthier through increased awareness and simple-to-use resources. This information is updated regularly, focusing on topics that can make an immediate, positive impact on you and your patients.
