Factors that may threaten or protect the wellbeing of staff working in paediatric intensive care environments (2023)
The results of this research identified perceived risks for wellbeing, including; a lack of preparation for the role, perceived worst shift, moral distress and isolation. Themes perceived as protective to wellbeing included; finding the work stimulating and meaningful, belonging to the team, and using humour. This study suggests risk factors often co-existed simultaneously with protective factors and not as a dichotomy.
