The American Nurses Association (ANA) 2017 Year of the Healthy Nurse features monthly best practices for wellness and nurses' health. During the month of October, ANA will focus on and provide resources for Workplace Violence, Moral Resilience, Immunizations and Infection Control. Please read the message below from ANA:
October is a rich month filled with guidance and resources on Workplace Violence, Moral Resilience, Immunizations and Infection Control. Given the recent events in the news raising the awareness of Workplace Violence, it is important for nurses to be prepared as well as develop ways to strengthen Moral Resilience. This month's resources include a host of webinars on Moral Resilience, Reversing Bullying in the Workplace, Getting Ahead of Sepsis, and Environmental Infection Control.
October also features a host of fun activities. Plan to attend ANA's Navigate Nursing Webinar on Moral Resilience, free for ANA members on October 18, 2017. Join us for a Twitter Chat on #ProviderWellness October 18, 6pm ET on strengthening resilience in health care providers. Consider downloading Stop Breathe and Think, a free mobile app to help you find resilience within your everyday practice.
International Infection Control Week is October 15 – 21, 2017. It is important that nurses understand the necessity for infection control as well as the benefits of immunizations.
