Increasing awareness of available resources http://tx.english-ch.com/teacher/alvi/goodcommunication.jpeg Take proactive actions in making management aware of the effects of stress and burnout. On unit health promotion programs result in a reduction of staff absence by over 25% (Lowe, 2006) Staying current in professional practice by being involved in formal and non-formal educational initiatives PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT Increasing awareness and education related to environmental risks
Documenting and communicating safety and risk management concerns including 'near misses'
Promote a safe working environment that protects patients/clients and staff from physical harm. The overall level of nurse burnout on hospital units also affected patient satisfaction (Vahey, Aiken, Sloane, Clarke, & Vargas, 2004) SELF CARE Continuous self-evaluation Knowing personal capacity and limits Maintaining personal wellness Collaborative Nursing Practice Nurses must act in a manner that is consistent with their standards of practice, codes of ethics, scopes of practice and other relevant legislation
Nurses should practice within their own level of competence and seek direction and guidance from other health care professionals when aspects of the care required are beyond their individual competence (CNO, 2012) Nurses require access to supports and resources in order to provide safe and appropriate care. Including... Discussion Questions 1. How could you as a student nurse contribute to changing a poor quality environment? 2. As a new nurse, you arrive on a unit that has a poor quality practice environment. Due to this environment, there is a high number of poor patient outcomes. What would you recommend to initiate change for a better environment to this unit? Effective nursing leadership
Appropriate and sufficient staff
Adequate nurse-client ratios
Organizational support for collaborative practice
Sufficient time to discuss client care needs with colleagues (CNA, 2009) A quality practice environment is... “...a workplace that supports nursing practice, fosters professional development, and promotes the delivery of quality care.” CNO (2011, p.12) The Three Factors Shaping this Environment: Practice Supports
Consultation resources
Environmental stability The Issue It has been known for years that there is a correlation between a negative work environment and employee stress. (Spence Laschinger et al., 2006)
Higher levels of nurse burnout has been related to poor quality practice environments, just as lower levels of burnout are associated with environments that are able to provide job autonomy, control over the practice environment, and nurse/physician relationships that are good. (Spence Laschinger et al., 2006)
Nurse burnout is a problem on a global scale (Aiken et al., 2011) Aiken, L. H., Sloane, D. M., Clarke, S., Poghosyan, L., Cho, E., You, L., Finlayson, M., Kanai-Pak, M., Aungsuroch, Y. (2011).
