Presenting research and practical applications of emotional self-care for nurses.

Examining practical applications of emotional self-care for nurses, Dr Hannah Andrews will present her research on nurses’ experience of self-care and self-compassion. Helping nurses to be proactively more self-caring and self-compassionate may increase their ability to manage emotions and prevent some of the more negative consequences of nursing such as burnout and compassion fatigue. Participants in the study identified that if they had formal permission to look after themselves then they would be more likely to engage in it and benefit from self-care and self-compassion. This event will also consider the recently announced overhaul of mental health and wellbeing support for NHS staff.
