Tired? Laughter is the Best Medicine

Nurses are known to have a wicked a sense of humour. However, when shiftwork starts getting the better of a once jovial nurse, it is no laughing matter. Miserable nurses create miserable workplaces, which is particularly worrying in environments where the rotating shifts can be, at times, unrelenting. This session looks at how you, as a nurse, can infuse humour back into your shifts and, in so doing, create a better working environment for yourself, your colleagues, and your patients.

The educator was enthusiastic and inspiring, I wish more nurse educators could engage the way she did. It is unusual to finish a session with an enthusiastic uplifting feeling.

This was hands down the best video I have watched in a long time. I wish all work places could listen to this to. And in turn incorporate the learnings to make hospitals/health care facilities positive and happy places to be despite people being sick. I loved it!

This is an interesting topic which has changed my thoughts that I should always look very sad when I work with patients in hospitals. If I am relaxed, I could make my patients feel relaxed, and vice versa.

Very knowledgeable recapping the way that I work in a team.
