“This book helps to meet a desperate need. Levels of healthcare staff stress, turnover and sickness absence – already at crisis levels before the pandemic – are deeply damaging our ability to care for those in our communities. The chapters are practical, powerful and wide ranging in describing how to act to address the underlying causes and consequences of working in environments that fail to meet our core human needs. They describe the content and successes of courageous interventions to bring about change, firmly embedded in robust psychological theory and research. Woven together by the core themes of compassion and justice, the chapters together offer a rich resource for leaders across our healthcare systems who must now recognise that high quality and compassionate care for staff is fundamental to ensuring high quality and compassionate care for our communities”.
