Schedule Day One
The Goal Need for Program
These days, burnout and stress are commonly associated with the nursing profession. We all know the nature of the work can be exceptionally demanding. Terms such as ‘compassion fatigue’ illustrate the emotions involved. The complex combination of stressors result in impaired well-being; costly sick leave; decreased quality care; and, increased risk. As well, burnout and stress are associated with an often talked about sense of ‘career misery’. This may well cause the loss of highly experienced nurses from the profession. In order to combat these mental health vulnerabilities nurses first need to understand the psychology underpinning stress and burnout; and, then be familiar with strategies that can develop the necessary resilience required to prevent these insidious professional dangers from occurring.
