Staff Support in Health Care Summary


Staff Support in Health Care by David J. Stoter

Staff support involves more than building in a recognized support system, or bringing in a service at a time of crisis. Staff support involves the creation of a caring and healthy working environment which is an integral part of the health care service. This work explores the essential nature of staff support, identifies the common core needed within any system, and describes the wide range of options available once the foundation is laid. Three main themes are linked throughout the text. How do you manage pressure - at a personal level, within a group or team, and within an organization related to management structures? Pressures and demands are identified at each of these three levels with practical examples given to help minimize the impact of stress. It offers innovative approaches to help individuals and those working in staff care services to make effective decisions about the most appropriate support. The book should be a useful text for those following personal study in this area, providing examples, case studies, self-directed study questions and reflective exercises.
