The Goal

Need for Program

Burnout is now recognised as an occupational phenomenon - although it’s not a medical condition. It can manifest as exhaustion, ‘increased mental distance’ from work, and reduced professional efficacy (WHO, 2019). The complex combination of stressors results in impaired well-being, costly sick leave and a potential decrease in the quality of patient care. In order to combat these mental health vulnerabilities, it is important to understand the psychology underpinning stress and burnout. Strategies that develop resilience can assist in preventing these insidious professional dangers from occurring and at the same time, raise the quality of patient care.

Purpose of Program

To provide nurses with strategies that will assist in reducing stress and burnout, increase personal wellness and job satisfaction, and also to enhance patient care.

Your learning outcomes:

Use reflection and knowledge to gain insight into factors that may cause personal stress and burnout
Have strategies for increasing resilience in day-to-day work situations
Tune into your patients with your own energy so as to promote compassionate mutual healing
Leave work completely behind you when you go home
