Research: An online study is to look at the issue of burn out for nurses

Nurses are invited to take part in research looking at burnout and how it impacts on mental well-being as well as their capacity to treat older patients.

The online study is being undertaken by the School of Psychology and the School of Nursing and Midwifery at NUI Galway.

A recent survey in 2016 of nursing staff across 200 hospitals in Belgium, England, Finland, Ireland, Spain and Switzerland, found that nearly a third showed signs of burnout and a similar proportion were dissatisfied with their job.

A qualitative study in three emergency departments across Ireland revealed that many leave because they are "often forced to engage in a sliding scale of care resulting in reduced dignity for patients".To participate visit the online survey link at http://svy.mk/2j3UtGu.
