Paper: The professional resilience of mid-career GPs in the UK: a qualitative study

https://doi.org/10.3399/BJGP.2021.0230

In this study, GPs identify ‘good’ mid-career resilience and protective factors such as social support, which concurs with existing research. The novel contribution is the identification of clear factors that reduce the professional resilience of GPs in the UK. A GP with strong resilience may exhibit obstructive work behaviours and surface acting to demonstrate resilience. Resilience has become another work task for GPs. Social media, despite being intended to be supportive, can act as a drain on resilience.
