Cover image for lecture: Reconnecting with the Heart of Nursing

Lecture Overview

Has burnout come to be expected amongst nurse managers? In this session, Jane Stanfield prompts nurse managers to consider how compassionate coaching/mentorship or supervision can assist you to reconnect with the heart of why you got into nursing.

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! See Educator Profile

A point of constructive criticism would be for speakers to rely more on words and less on pointer devices, as this translates far better to e-learning, where the pointer cannot be seen. E.G: instead of saying "we want to stay here and here" and indicating with the pointer, the speaker could say "we want to stay either in the performance zone or the renewal zone".
