Depersonalization refers to treat other as objects rather than people through uncaring attitudes and behaviors. Diminished personal accomplishment is to evaluate oneself negatively because of failure a result it occurs when the individual’s external demands become higher than their coping ability. (Maslach, Schaufeli, leiter., 2001) . Many studies revealed that there is a high prevalence of burnout among nurses worldwide, it can affect approximately 45% of medical and nursing staff . (Abdo, El-Sallamy, El-Sherbiny, & Kabbash., 2015) .
(2017) shows that healthcare providers often experience negative emotional repercussions from moral distress in the ICU, and patient care is frequently perceived as being negatively affected. In addition, the same study reveals that nurses and other health care providers in the intensive care unit are more likely to leave their job due to moral distress as compared to other hospital settings. Research has shown that moral distress and ethical issues can have profound impacts on health care providers, such as patient safety, workplace dissatisfaction, and emotional suffering. As a practicing ICU nurse, I also have my fair share of
Mental health problems effect countless amounts of people every day. Two texts that highlight mental health concerns are Nellie Bly’s “Ten Days in a Mad-House” and Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper”. These two texts pertain to mental health, which is a significant issue, because it can affect a single person throughout their entire life. When mental health is improperly treated, it can create an extremely negative impact that will lead to disastrous outcomes, which is something that these two texts illustrate with detail. In conversation with one another, Nellie Bly’s “Ten Days in a Mad-House” and Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” show a misunderstanding of mental health from the perspectives of two different people.
As a result, mental illness became one of the detrimental causes of homelessness, especially among the adult population. The mentally ill therefore, contribute greatly to the chronically homeless population. In 2013, the Annual Homeless Assessment Report
1.1 Occupational Stress in Health Care Profession The term occupational stress is used interchangeably with work stress and or job stress but its definition refers to the same thing (Larson, 2004). Job related stress has long been an important aspect in the study of worker’s responses to their work environments. Occupational stress, according to Malaysian Psychiatric Association (2009), is defined as the awareness of not being able to cope with the demands of one’s work environment with an associated negative emotional response. World Health Organization (2004) defines occupational related stress as the response individuals may have when facing with work loads and pressures that are way over their knowledge and abilities and which challenge their ability to cope. There is a rising interest in the psychosocial work setting of health care professionals since they are at great risk for perceiving occupational
Violence against healthcare providers is a significant problem that has been receiving growing attention. Incidents of workplace violence are experienced by nurses and physicians on a day-to-day basis, especially in emergency departments. The corollary of this phenomenon has become a significant matter due to the psychological stress it is placing on healthcare providers, hence affecting their efficiency and productivity. We may often undermine the consequences of workplace violence, but studies show that it may cause distress, apathy, rage, disappointment, helplessness, anxiety, self-doubt, and insecurity of healthcare workers. (Öztunç 360-365)Hence, their entire job performance is decreased and absenteeism is increased.
According to the CDC “more than a quarter of all Americans and two of three older Americans have multiple chronic conditions” (CDC, 2013, p. 6). These chronic conditions place older adults at risk. Depression is more than just a low mood – it’s a serious condition that has an impact on both physical and mental health. The precise
Depression commonly affects a vast amount of patients in the primary care setting (L. Foldager, 2011). The increased cases of depression over the years are worrying (Mitchell et al., 2013). There is thus a need to enhance diagnosis and treatment. The purpose of the paper is to review an evidence-based clinical practice guideline (CPG) used to effectively diagnose and treat individual suspected of having depression by health practitioners in the primary care setting. Clinical issue Depression occurs due to many reasons including recent loss, chronic medical illness, domestic violence or loss of a loved one.
Day, Kelloway and Hurrell, (2014) as well as Farrell and Geist-Martin (2005) add to the organisational wellness argument even as they support the work of Salanova et al. (2012) and Kortum (2015) Generational differences in work values have a mostly negative impact on the health of an organisation as it significantly increases the toxicity levels within the organisation. Toxicity depletes vitality from the organisation and its members (Frost, 2004) Before discussing further, it is necessary to explain the theory. Affective events theory asserts that the characteristics of the job and its emotional labour requirements have an impact on work attitudes and behaviour and result in work events; Work events subsequently result in positive and negative affect (Van Dijk & Brown, 2006). Experiences influence perception (Robbins & Judge, 2012), thus the differing experiences of the different generations makes for differing perceptions and values.
Nurses required a highly, demanding skills such as teamwork in different situations, dealing with sick and dying, delivering care and be responsibility for the patients round the clock, and shift work (Meyer & Allen, 1997). Besides, high workload, nurse shortage, lack of support and conflict in values with other healthcare professions are most commonly reported and have been underscored to be one of the major factors of stressors proposed in the nursing profession which may affect nurses’ decision to quit the profession (Khamisa, Peltzer, & Oldenburg, 2013). Job stress in nursing has contribute to an “ubiquitous threat” whereby it constantly, extensively affect the physio-psychological well being of nurses and the standard of nursing care. National Center for Biotechnology Information, 2013; cited by Jennings, 2008 claimed that prolonged exposure to work-related stress is associated with burnout. Work stressors also anticipated with low job satisfaction, organisation inefficiency, excessive staff turnover and absenteeism due to staff falling sick (Borda & Norman, 1997; Clegg, 2001; Kirkcaldy & Martin, 2000).
