Clinician stress is a significant and widely prevalent issue in healthcare. It’s an issue that can affect patient safety, negatively impact the patient experience and increase the cost of care. And that doesn’t take into account the physical and mental health problems caused by stress and burnout on clinicians themselves.
Stress and stress related health issues affect all clinicians, but in many respects nurses may have it the worst. In one survey, 60% of nurses said that they had suffered physical or mental health problems in the past year as side effects of work related stress. In another survey, among those who quit the profession, 26% claimed stress was the reason.
Beyond the health implications for patients and nurses, stress affects nurse’s morale, job satisfaction, and job retention.
Solutions to stress and burnout among nurses require a multi-pronged approach focusing on stress reduction, stress management techniques and the development of resiliency or healthy coping skills.
