Working inside the modern Healthcare environment can be extremely stressful and challenging, but also incredibly rewarding.
Research has identified the common stressors associated with modern workplaces, which includes working with and communicating to a wide variety of people with different sets of values, beliefs, and attitudes. Shift work itself is physically mentally and emotionally demanding.
Dealing with death and dying on a regular basis – the research says, “the more exposed we are to death and dying, we are at greater risk of developing compassion fatigue.” Finally, time pressures, technology, and expectations to do more with fewer resources creates enormous pressure and stress within teams.
This can explain why there is an epidemic of disruptive and bad behaviour among our peers and colleagues and why it’s even more important to practice self-care and to be able to build your emotional resilience.
