According to the survey titled "What Nurses & Midwives Want: Findings from the National Survey on Workplace Climate and Well-being" conducted by Monash University, almost a third of Australia's nurses are thinking of leaving the profession because they are overworked, undervalued and in danger of burning out. On top of that, other complexities involved in a non-motivated nursing workforce include a general feeling of disconnection between management and nurses and midwives, the lack of confidence to openly voice their concerns due to fear of retribution and lack of further personal growth and development plan from their organizations. It is undoubtedly that we are heading towards an imminent and acute nursing shortfall in Australia and the most unsettling result of the nursing shortage is that patient care may be adversely affected. As nurses who protect the health and safety of their patients, it is important for you to possess sound leadership capacities and  effective communication skills in reducing nurses stress and preventing turnover in order to ensure that your patients' experience and health outcomes are not compromised.

With your needs always on our mind, Clariden Global’s 2-day executive program on Managing Nursing Stress, Preventing Burnouts And Turnovers led by internationally acclaimed leadership trainer, Beverley Honig, will provide you with a practical guide on how to guard against compassion fatigue, burnout and high turnover rate in your workplace.

Through various interactive group learning activities, you will discover the importance of leadership development in ensuring nurses and patients' wellbeing, and how to develop action plan for personal growth in ensuring job satisfaction, to understanding the essence of optimal time management in preventing burnout in nurses due to cumbersome red tape. Through hands-on exercises, you will find out what it takes to improve team productivity, foster teamwork and communication and boost productivity by establishing facility-wide protocols that support both nurses and patients. Last but not least, you can expect to learn how to sustain your team performance at the top by assisting nurses in managing their stress to increase concentration, attentiveness and problem-solving abilities.

By the end of this program, you will walk away with a comprehensible and actionable plan in reducing stress and handling workload to ensure a highly motivated team with improved productivity and job satisfaction.

Program Outline

Session One: Leadership Development
Leadership has a direct impact on the performance of employees, other leaders, and the company as a whole. Therefore, leaders who are in tune with their behaviors and its impacts, and assess them on a regular basis will be in a better position to make the best decision possible.

Session Two: Improvement of Productivity
For nurses to provide the highest possible level of patient care, it is imperative they have the time and resources needed to maximize their efficiency. The more energy they can devote to their patients, the more they can contribute to their recovery. Hospitals can often boost productivity by establishing facility-wide protocols that support both nurses and patients.

  • Delegating Assignments
  • Optimizing Technology
  • Streamlining Processes
  • Understanding the Essence of Optimal Time Management
  • Productivity Case Studies

Session Three: Stress Management and Burnout
Even when nurses enjoy their jobs, the long hours and day-to-day strain of caring for critically ill patients can take an emotional toll and cause burnout. The burden created by this hinders a nurse’s ability to make decisions, focus on her work and collaborate with fellow nurses.

Helping nurses manage their stress can contribute to increased concentration, attentiveness and problem-solving abilities. For example, providing ongoing training to nurses can make them feel more confident in their skills. Encouraging managers to offer support can give nurses the emotional foundation they need to contribute their best efforts even in challenging circumstances.
