A free interactive resource, conceived and designed by nurses, to help you better understand your decisions around work-related unhealthy food behaviours and to support you to find healthier alternatives.
The issue of obesity among nurses is highly sensitive and vitally important, not just because of the impact on nursing professionals' own health and wellbeing, but also because of the impact on patients, as well as productivity within the workplace.
The Healthy Weight Initiative for Nurses (WIN.) project used focus groups, workshops and surveys to understand the perspectives of overweight nursing professionals and how the challenges they face at work affected their ability to make healthy choices.
The project then worked with the participants to identify and test what might help them recognise triggers for unhealthy food decisions and help them make better choices. The NURSING YOU interactive resource was the result of this collaborative work.
