Majority of doctors fear violence and are stressed out, reveals IMA study
The all-India survey highlights the unsatisfactory nature of the job and the urgent need to create awareness
 
New Delhi, 01 July 2017: A landmark all-India survey released by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) on the occasion of Doctors Day has found that about 82.7% of doctors in India feel stressed out in their profession. While fear of violence is the main stressor in many doctors (46.3%) followed by fear of being sued (24.2%) and fear of criminal prosecution (13.7%). The findings come in the light of the many atrocities faced by the medical fraternity today, the most disturbing of which include violence against doctors and their criminal prosecution. The anxiety of doctors over the issues plaguing the profession is evident by the fact that about 56% of them do not get a comfortable 7-hour sleep most days of the week.
 
Conducted online over a period of 15 days, the survey received responses from 1681 doctors including general practitioners, physicians, surgeons, gynecologists and super specialists working in private OPDs, nursing homes, corporate hospitals or government hospitals.
