Articles: Burnout/Self Care/Work-life balance

5. Self-Care for Health Professionals During Coronavirus Disease 2019 Crisis  

Judith Haefner

Journal for Nurse Practitioners, 2021-03-01, 17(3), 279-282

Health care providers are coping with unprecedented deaths, decisions for which patient receives a lifesaving ventilator, and the personal fear of contracting a virus that presently has no known treatment protocol. Suggestions for self-care for yourself and colleagues are discussed.

6. Factors contributing to burnout and work-life balance in adult oncology nursing: An integrative review  

Louise Gribben & Cherith Jane Semple

European Journal of Oncology Nursing, 2021-02-01, Volume 50, Article 101887.

Occupational stress and burnout are highlighted as the most prevalent workplace issues for adult oncology nurses. The aim of this integrative review is to synthesis the evidence on burnout and work-life balance for adult oncology nurses.

7. Resilience, stress, and psychological well-being in nursing students: A systematic review  

Zhuang-Shuang Li & Felicity Hasson

Nurse Education Today, 2020-07-01, Vol. 90, Article 104440

Synthesize the evidence relating to the interaction of resilience, stress, and well-being in undergraduate nursing students across countries.

8. Burnout in New Zealand registered nurses: The role of workplace factors

Costantinos Tabakakis., Margaret McAllister & Julie Bradshaw

Kai Tiaki Nursing Research, November 2020

Nursing is characterised by chronic workplace stress. Research examining the role of workplace factors (ie practice environment and bullying) in shaping burnout is scarce.

9. Issues: Emergency department nurses' narratives of burnout: Blurring of roles and professional identity

Debbie Hetherington., Gillian Murphy., Nathan Wilson & Kathleen Dixon

Australian Nursing and Midwifery Journal, 01 July 2020

Australian nurses are exposed to ongoing stressful work situations with emergency department nurses facing unique stressors: including traumatic emergency cases (World Health Organization [WHO], 2019). Constant exposure to such stressful events presents the potential for the emergency department nurse to develop emotional coping response mechanisms that run counter to their professional identity as a nurse, such as a loss of compassion towards others.

10. Combatting staff burnout in mental health: Key managerial and leadership tasks that are fundamental to staff wellbeing and retention

D Coates & D Howe

Asia Pacific Journal of Health Management, 01 January 2015

Mental health workers are at high risk of burnout, and this not only impacts negatively on the employee, but also on the quality of the service for clients and the functioning of organisations. While staff stress and burnout can be, at least in part, attributed to the emotional demands of mental health work, organisational management and leadership style plays a critical role in protecting staff against burnout and creating workplace environments that buffer against it.

11. Research and policy: Burning out - Workforce mental health and COVID-19

Micah DJ Peters

Australian Nursing and Midwifery Journal, 01 January 2021

Burnout is an occupational phenomenon (rather than a medical diagnosis) that arises as a result of continuing, unsuccessfully to manage work-related stress. Three dimensions are typically experienced; emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation or cynicism in relation to one’s work, and depleted work efficiency.

Articles: Succession Planning

12. Succession planning in nursing education

Laura K. Phillips

Nursing Outlook, 2021-01-01, 69(1) 32-42.

Succession planning in nursing is a new concept with limited evidence found in nursing education. The purpose of this study was to provide a comprehensive summary of the descriptions of succession planning, as self-reported by administrators over an academic nursing division.

13. Succession Planning Within the Health Care Organization

Joycelyn Desarno., Miguel Perez., Rachel Rivas., Irene Sandate., & Ileana Fonseca 

Nurse Leader, 2020

There is a growing need for capable leaders to replace incumbents in critical positions in cases of resignation, retirement, promotions, death, growth, expansion, and creation of new positions. Developing an effective succession planning process can guide organizations to evaluate their present situation and decide the critical employees who will ultimately step into leadership and senior management positions. 

14. Revitalising Organisations' Emergency Succession Planning in the Face of the Covid-19 Outbreak

Bano, Yasmeen., Omar, Siti Sarah & Ismail, Fadillah.

The European Journal of Social & Behavioural Sciences (2021), 30(1), 3253-3268. DOI:10.15405/ejsbs.285

This study is a review paper which will highlight the difference between longterm and emergency succession planning, the major challenges faced by all organizations and, suggests best options for preparing emergency succession planning during the pandemic crises.

Dominion Post - 6 May 2021

Researchers from New Zealand are developing a new brain imaging technique which will help detect brain disorders and aneurysms before they become life-threatening and allow the brain to be seen as never before. The new technique, called 3D amplified MRI, or 3D aMRI, reveals pulsating brain movement which could help researchers to non-invasively diagnose brain disorder.

20. When to stop drinking caffeine to get a good night's sleep

By Ada Wood - 3 May 2021

Many of us start our days the same way: with a cup of coffee or tea. Caffeine is as much a part of our routine as brushing our teeth or getting dressed for the day. Maybe your habit extends to a cup of coffee in the afternoon, or you have a soda with your dinner.

21. Genetics can influence how our immune system responds to SARS-CoV-2. What about the COVID vaccine?

ABC Health & Wellbeing - By health reporter Lauren Roberts

Some people are more affected by COVID-19 than others, and this new study gives a clue as to why.
