Assessing work-related well-being of Diabetes / Endocrine StRs - A YDEF initiative to help to improve training conditions

 

It is about TIME we assess the work place well-being for the trainee registrars in our wonderful specialty i.e. Diabetes & Endocrinology. It is something not done before in our specialty in UK but American physicians do it on a yearly basis. It is an important aspect to identify in our training and it may help improve work related experience and the stressors faced by our StR. This survey is completely anonymous and it may have a significant impact on identifying work related well-being/burnout.

Please note that we the organisers have to pay for each link (approx 2£ to click a licensed survey link, even if you do not complete) so please click only when you have ten minutes to spare for your specialty.

This independent survey will help us identify the concerns and status of work-related well-being in Diabetes and Endocrine StRs across England, Wales & Scotland so please take 10 minutes to fill this survey. Please note that this is the pre-survey page (surveyMonkey - free site) which will then take you to the actual link for Mind Garden (paid) site.
