Waardevolle informatie voor de training van EM: wat veroorzaakt (de meeste) stress en zijn er verschillen tussen mannen en vrouwen? Dat laatste heeft mogelijk ook gevolgen voor de training (differentieren). Zie ook Wendy Dorrestijn over dit onderwerp bij de Politie.

The results of this survey demonstrate the high prevalence of stress and anxiety among US EM residents and the specific intrinsic factors of a shift, particularly interpersonal concerns and resource scarcity, that contribute to this. Female residents reported a significantly higher score on the Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 assessment and reported higher stress response scores to several intrinsic shift factors compared to male residents, suggesting a need to consider gender when addressing anxiety in EM residents. As many risk factors for anxiety and burnout are intrinsic to medicine and the specialty of EM in particular, the topic of EM resident wellness should receive further exploration to provide programs with data to realistically address this issue in their own departments.
