Lecture Overview

Resilience – are we born with it or does it develop? It’s recognised to help us adapt positively to stress, recover from trauma and grow and develop through adversity. In this presentation, Jane Stanfield introduces the concept or resilience and how you can learn to bounce-back from hardships faced in practice and in your personal life.


Jane Stanfield

Jane Stanfield is a health service improvement coach. She comes with 30 years’ experience in healthcare, half as a clinician and half in health administration, support and coaching. Having had a brush with burnout herself and several close family members receiving healthcare, her focus is on bringing compassion back to healthcare for all involved. Her current use of neuroscience and mindfulness at work enables healthcare providers to work with their own mind, emotions and behaviour to influence their culture in a way that will energise and motivate them as they manage the safety and reliability of their care and its focus on the patient—whilst caring for themselves. Jane is currently coaching several nurse leaders; and runs workshops on leadership, shaping cultures, wellbeing, and communication and patient safety (CAPS). Her most recent professional development personally is in LEAN thinking – reducing waste and improving flow in healthcare….because waste is disrespectful to people!

Nursing is a stress full job and we are required to use or emotive personality a lot, so when we are tired and stressed this is the are that we tend to respond from. So this resource demonstrated and reiterated that taking time to self care and even just a short time to breath and relax allows nurses time to change from the emotional part of ourselves into the cognitive side thus allowing us to respond from knowledge and not emotion and fear
