Summary and Info
All pressure is not harmful. A certain amount of pressure can enhance performance. But excessive, unrelenting negative pressure results in individuals experiencing stress. This book focuses on the why, when and how stress occurs from working in the health service, and on advisable approaches to take, from the perspectives of the practitioner, the workplace team, and health care organization. This book aims to help NHS staff to learn how to control stress arising from patients' demands, excessive workload, continual organizational change and the plethora of government directives. It offers a straightforward overview of the whole subject, combined with detailed information about controlling stresses. It provides a wide range of practical methods to reduce or control stress as an individual, encourages NHS teams to consider how to control stress for team members, and shows how to incorporate stress management within life-long learning and self-development. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this should be useful reading for doctors, managers, therapists and nurses in every health care setting, as well as for those working in integrated social care, health and education settings.
