Poll: tell us why you’re stressed


What’s the most stressful part of your job?

Recently, the National Stress and Wellbeing Survey of Pharmacists, Intern Pharmacists and Pharmacy Students found that pharmacists are, overall, a fairly stressed bunch.

Similar to doctors and nurses, pharmacists experience higher stress levels than the rest of the population.

The survey showed some reasons why pharmacists were feeling the pressure, such as the fact that only 30% are satisfied with their workload.

Now, the AJP would like to know why you’re feeling stressed: what’s the single thing making life harder for you in the pharmacy profession?

AJP is reporting on stress affecting the pharmacy profession. Readers are invited to tell their stories, either by leaving comments below or getting in touch with the AJP team.

Readers who are distressed can contact the Pharmacists’ Support Service on 1300 244 910.
