Exclusive webinar by Professor Gail Kinman on the recently-published report "Mental Health of Nurses and Midwives" co-authored by Dr. Kevin Teoh, and commissioned by the Royal College of Nursing Foundation. 

The report is based on a systematic review of research that has examined the scale of mental health problems in the workforce and associated issues such as work-related stress and burnout. 

Also identified are the occupational, organisational and individual difference factors that underpin the mental health of the workforce and the wider implications for the wellbeing of staff and patients. Interventions that have the potential to enhance the wellbeing of UK nurses and midwives are presented.  

The webinar presents a series of recommendations for action from different stakeholders based on the review process and input from groups of midwives and nurses.  

The report can be downloaded here.
