Research shows there is a high occurrence of stress in the lives of healthcare providers, including nurses, and this can have a significant effect on psychological health and well-being. This webinar will discuss the potential impact of a high stress work environment and the patterns and prevalence of developing Post Traumatic Stress. We will also discuss strategies to increase awareness and support wellness within the nursing profession.
