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

Karen-Ann Clarke

Dr Karen-Ann Clarke is a registered nurse and a specialised mental health nurse with 30 years’ experience of working with individuals and families impacted by the experience of mental illness. Using a feminist narrative methodology, her PhD research explored the way that women diagnosed with depression made decisions and meanings about receiving electroconvulsive therapy. As a lecturer in nursing at USC, Karen-Ann is responsible for the coordination of mental health curricula across multiple undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Teaching in excess of 900 undergraduate students each year, she is passionate about the value that immersive mental health simulation can bring to student’s learning and clinical skills and the way that it can safely bring to life theoretical concepts related to mental healthcare. Karen-Ann currently supervises a number of honours, masters and PhD students and is part of numerous research projects, involving visualisation and simulation, mental illness, suicide prevention and the inclusion of people with lived experience of mental illness into the teaching and learning space. Read More

Jane Stanfield

Jane Stanfield is a health service improvement coach. She comes with 30 years’ experience in healthcare, half as a clinician and half in health administration, support and coaching. Having had a brush with burnout herself and several close family members receiving healthcare, her focus is on bringing compassion back to healthcare for all involved. Her current use of neuroscience and mindfulness at work enables healthcare providers to work with their own mind, emotions and behaviour to influence their culture in a way that will energise and motivate them as they manage the safety and reliability of their care and its focus on the patient while caring for themselves. Jane is currently coaching several nurse leaders and runs workshops on leadership, shaping cultures, wellbeing, and communication and patient safety (CAPS). Her most recent professional development personally is in LEAN thinking - reducing waste and improving flow in healthcare…because waste is disrespectful to people! Read More
