Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is dedicated to Burnout and Suicide in Healthcare and Allied Professionals. This issue invites review articles and original research papers that must centre around factors leading to burnout and suicide in healthcare and allied fields, the causes of this, the psychosocial interventions for it, the characteristics, and the clinical relevance and policy issues surrounding these themes. Papers on the same theme related to COVID-19 and the current pandemic will be given special preference. Papers related to ethical issues on the theme of the issue are also welcome. Articles involving burnout and suicide in doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, hospital staff, and social workers and/or case managers will be appreciated.

Prof. Russell D'souza
Guest Editor
