Nursing staff were already under pressure but Covid-19 has obviously taken this to a new level, with emerging evidence suggesting nurse mental health and wellbeing has been significantly affected.
Nursing Times, in partnership with Vocera Communications, is asking how can nurse wellbeing be better supported and what is the role for technology?
We are excited to announce that we will be holding a webinar at 3pm on Wednesday 16 September to discuss the following main themes:
- What are the key challenges around nurse wellbeing?
- What could and should be done to better support the mental health of nurses?
- How can technology help support nurse wellbeing and improve resiliency?
Don’t miss your chance to join in the conversation and engage with our panel who are ready to answer your questions and give their views on these important themes.
They include Kathryn Halford, deputy chief executive and chief nurse at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, providing a management perspective at a major trust in London.
For a frontline view, we have Roisin Devlin, nursing modernisation manager for workforce, education and development at South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust in Northern Ireland.
Bringing a global perspective is Rhonda Collins, chief nursing officer at Vocera Communications, and the author of the report Nurses Have Stepped Up. Now It’s Time to Support Them as We Move Forward.
You can send us your questions ahead of the event or submit them live during the webinar.
Don’t delay, register today, and join in the conversation on nurse wellbeing. It’s completely free.
In the early stages of the pandemic, Nursing Times launched its Covid-19: Are You OK? campaign to highlight the mental health needs of nursing staff working during the crisis and lobby for support.
Our survey for the campaign found that 33% of respondents rated their overall mental health and wellbeing as “bad” or “very bad” and 50% described themselves as “a lot” more anxious or stressed since the pandemic.
The survey, which had 3,500 respondents, also revealed nurses’ concerns around access to personal protective equipment, contracting Covid-19, being redeployed and witnessing the death of patients without family present.
