Healthcare Worker Fatigue: Too Tired to Care?
Can fatigue impair your thinking? Is working at night the same as working during the day as long as hours are consistent?

Managing Your Time: Work Smarter, Not Harder
Nurses who gain control over how they manage their time boost their performance, gain a sense of satisfaction and reduce their daily stress. It’s the key to improving outcomes, keeping patients saf, and reducing burnout. This module identifies strategies to help nurses be more productive, more efficien, and less stressed.
Nurse, Take Care of Thy Self
Nurses are known for taking care of others at the cost of their own well being. Lack of self-care can lead to compassion fatigue, personal health issues, and a lack of work life balance. When a nurse takes the time to care for themselves, both their colleagues and patients will reap the benefit.
Fatigue Countermeasures
While long hours, shiftwork, and overnight work may be a necessary part of healthcare, there are interventions you can take to help you work safely.  Have you prepared yourself for long hours on duty?

Surviving and Thriving with Conflict on the Job
Conflict is part of every work environment, including healthcare organizations. When handled correctly, conflict can be managed in order to achieve beneficial outcomes. Conflict can be a motivator for change and growth, a medium for airing problems and a dynamic force to prevent stagnation.
The Healing Power of Humor
Research supports the physiological benefits of laughter for cardiovascular health, pain reduction, improved mood, decreased anxiety and more. Humor can relieve stress and improve empathy in healthcare providers. This module gives nurses information on using the healing power of humor in caring for themselves and patients.
Guts to be Happy: Microbes for Mental Health
Who would have thought that the microbes in our GI tract can affect our mood and mental health.  What we eat determines the make-up of our microbiome, which then sends signals to our brain. Learn how the gut-brain-microbiome connection works, dietary influences on the microbiome, and how what you eat is tied to your mood, and to mental health.
