Before your learning session, I could really see the value in concept maps, but being more of a “linear thinker”, I’ve always struggled with the ability to both use and teach CMs. As an educator, I need any tools I can get to help my students accomplish skills that not only do I have, but those I wish I had. So I was very interested in seeing how to do this and share it with my students. After your learning session, I can honestly say that I feel a great deal more comfortable in attempting to not only use CMs but also in enabling my students to learn from this process. Thanks Deanne!

There are a number of interventions that can mitigate the occupational hazards of nursing. They can be individual-focused or organization-focused. Individual-focused interventions include stress management programs, which can be customized to individuals. Stress management programs can reduce anxiety, sleep disorders, and other symptoms of stress. Organizational interventions focus on reducing stressful aspects of the work environment by defining stressful characteristics and developing solutions to them. Using organizational and individual interventions together is most effective at reducing stress on nurses.
