Abstract

This article explores strategies that nurses can use to protect themselves from burnout. The literature emphasises the need for organisational reform to prevent burnout. In the absence of organisational change the use of problem-focused strategies and emotion-focused strategies, such as reflection, may offer some protection against burnout. There is evidence that improving nurses' wellbeing results in better patient care.
