RÉSUMÉ

Oncology represents one of the areas of medicine where the emotional burden can be particularly high and where, as a consequence, health workers are at a higher risk of burnout. The relationship between the health worker and the patient is especially stressful; the relationship with the sick individual, with their family and with the issues related to the disease requires high levels of technical and psychosocial skill on the part of health workers. In this article, difficulties that health workers encounter during their work and in their relationships with oncology patients, as well as the importance of training as a tool to both improve the quality of health care and to prevent burnout, with the consequent positive impact on the quality of life of health workers, are considered.
