This resource highlights the need to value the importance of peers and identify that Junior staff , agency staff and relatives all should be valued in regards to proving the best outcome for a consumer or patient in whatever setting. Relatives are the best source of providing a history for allied health staff to provide optimal care for a patient. It is important that identification of staff dissatisfaction , exhaustion , roster , and lack of communication are dealt with to ensure that staff are retained and happy and feel valued in the workplace
