ABSTRACT

Introdução: Devido à crise sanitária mundial provocada pela disseminação da COVID-19, muitos serviços de saúde interromperam a realização de procedimentos cirúrgicos não urgentes. No cenário da Cirurgia Plástica, no qual a maioria das cirurgias são eletivas, estimam-se consequências socioeconômicas a estes especialistas. O objetivo deste estudo é dimensionar este impacto. Métodos: Os efeitos da pandemia dentro da prática clínica dos cirurgiões plásticos brasileiros foi investigada por meio de um questionário on-line, endereçado aos associados da Sociedade Brasileira de Cirurgia Plástica. Resultados: A pesquisa foi aplicada a 645 cirurgiões. A maioria dos entrevistados relatou restrições operacionais à realização de procedimentos e redução da renda, sobretudo nas regiões severamente afetadas pela pandemia. Cirurgiões plásticos com mais de 10 anos de formação foram os mais prejudicados. Elevada taxa de contaminação, sobrecarga mental, diminuição na prática de atividades físicas e uso de medicações psiquiátricas também foram relatados. Conclusão: A pandemia da COVID-19 trouxe mudanças no cenário pessoal e profissional do cirurgião plástico brasileiro. Devido à importante redução no volume de trabalho, houve impacto financeiro nos especialistas de todas as regiões do país, além de reflexos na saúde física e mental. Adaptações foram necessárias para manutenção dos atendimentos, além de exploração de novas áreas de atuação para suprir a baixa demanda de cirurgias estéticas durante a crise.


Introduction: Global sanitary crisis caused by the spread of COVID-19 induced many health services to stop performing non-urgent surgical procedures. In the scenario of plastic surgery, where most procedures are elective, socioeconomic consequences are estimated for these specialists. The objective of this study is to measure this impact. Methods: Effects of the pandemic within the clinical practice of Brazilian plastic surgeons were investigated through an online questionnaire addressed to members of the Sociedade Brasileira de Cirurgia Plástica. Results: A survey was applied to 645 surgeons. Most respondents reported operation restrictions on procedures and income reduction, especially in regions severely affected by the pandemic. Plastic surgeons with more than 10 years of experience were the most affected. High contamination rates, mental overload, decreased physical activity, and psychiatric medications have also been reported. Conclusion: COVID-19 pandemic brought changes to the personal and professional life of the Brazilian plastic surgeon. Due to the significant reduction in the workload, there were financial impacts on specialists from all country regions, besides physical and mental health issues. Adaptations were mandatory to maintain services and explore new areas of activity to supply the low demand for cosmetic surgery during the crisis.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: O objetivo deste artigo foi compreender a importância das "Soft Skills" no contexto do recrutamento e seleção de forma digital. O termo "Soft Skills" significa: atitudes psicológicas e comportamentos construtivos na interação com pessoas e grupos. Nesse contexto foram identificadas as ferramentas que estão sendo utilizadas para avaliá-las e quais são as Soft Skills adequadas nas diversas áreas profissionais em tempos de COVID-19. Métodos: A coleta de dados primários foi realizada através de entrevistas com especialistas que ocorreram em abril de 2020 e de uma survey que foi aplicada entre julho e dezembro de 2020. A amostra, após a limpeza dos dados, resultou em 169 respondentes, permitindo a realização da análise estatística descritiva dos dados. Resultados: Observou-se que as Soft Skills tornaram-se mais estratégicas no panorama da COVID-19. Além disso, ao comparar-se os médicos com especialidade em Cirurgia Plástica em relação às outras profissões, houve maior incidência do grau de concordância total entre os cirurgiões plásticos. Conclusão: Os resultados encontrados podem sugerir que entre os médicos com especialidade em Cirurgia Plástica a importância estratégica das Soft Skills tornou-se ainda mais intensa. Estes resultados, obtidos por meio de uma survey com dados quantitativos, estão em sintonia com a literatura científica apresentada neste artigo, assim como com estudos de organizações corporativas.

ABSTRACT

Oculoplastic surgery is uniquely well-positioned within the field of eye care to employ telehealth due to the largely external nature of the conditions treated. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, telehealth was seldom used in this subspecialty. The year 2020 saw a rapid increase in the use of telehealth by oculoplastic surgeons, particularly synchronous home-based video telehealth. The technology has been most popular for post-operative visits, though surgeons have advocated for its use for various other visit types as well. Oculoplastic surgery societies have advised in favor of using telehealth, but consensus within the field for how it is best used is lacking. This chapter introduces best practices for telehealth visit types and examination techniques for oculoplastic surgeons and suggests directions for future study.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: SARS-CoV-2 and its related COVID-19 are now affecting people worldwide. The pandemic, started at the end of 2019 and spread in Europe and all over the world at the beginning of the 2020, is the biggest threat to the health and to the economy of all countries, since the time of Spanish Flu. A global effort is being made to counter the virus with social distancing and restrictions, but our habits and behavior have dramatically been modified. Hospital activity has changed, and Plastic Surgery is affected as well as other disciplines. MATERIALS, METHODS AND RESULTS: Our work describes the impact of the pandemic on a Plastic Surgery Unit in a tertiary care hospital and estimates the possible consequences in the near future. Elective procedures and consultations have been postposed and rescheduled, but we ensured treatment for life-threatening conditions and offered the best therapy, complying with the new safety standard to protect the patients and the healthcare providers. Media helped in keeping in touch the people, ensuring continuity in education and circulation of the data about SARS-CoV-2 research. CONCLUSION: We don't know yet what the overall cost of the crisis will be on the global economy and on the National Health Systems. Definitely, it will be a big challenge to face, both for the Governments, for the people, as for healthcare providers. However, to date, we should remind our responsibilities as doctors, as we can contribute with our efforts and our knowledge to ensure continuity of care and research. KEY WORDS: COVID, COVID-19, Italy, Outbreak, Pandemic, Plastic Surgery, SARS-Cov-2. Oggi il virus SARS-CoV-2 rappresenta una minaccia per la popolazione mondiale. La pandemia, iniziata alla fine del 2019 e diffusasi in Europa e in tutto il mondo all’inizio del 2020 è la più grande minaccia alla salute e all’economia di tutti i paesi dai tempi dell’Influenza Spagnola. Uno sforzo globale è in atto per contenere il virus con il distanziamento sociale e le restrizioni. Le nostre abitudini e i nostri comportamenti sono cambiati drasticamente. Anche l’attività ospedaliera è cambiata e la Chirurgia Plastica è stata colpita come le altre discipline. Il nostro lavoro descrive l’impatto della pandemia su una Unità di Chirurgia Plastica in un centro ospedaliero di terzo livello e stima le possibili ripercussioni nel futuro prossimo. Le procedure chirurgiche e le visite elettive sono state posposte e riprogrammate, ma sono stati assicurati i trattamenti per le patologie urgenti ed è stata offerta la migliore terapia disponibile nonostante l’emergenza, nel rispetto dei nuovi standard di sicurezza, per proteggere il paziente e i professionisti della salute. I media hanno tenuto in contatto le persone, assicurando la continuità nell’educazione e la circolazione dei dati scientifici riguardo la ricerca sul SARS-CoV-2. Non sappiamo ancora quale sarà il costo complessivo della crisi sull’economia globale e sui Sistemi Sanitari Nazionali. Sicuramente rappresenterà una grande sfida da affrontare per i Governi, per i pazienti e per gli operatori sanitari. Dobbiamo dunque ricordare le nostre responsabilità come medici per assicurare con i nostri sforzi e la nostra conoscenza la continuità delle cure e della ricerca.
