What is this article about?

Time restraints, a busy environment, finding a suitable place and privacy (if necessary), or even your own personal reservations, could be affecting healthy communication amongst your team. You don’t all have to be best friends, but knowing how to support each other and checking in on your colleagues, especially if they are 'not themselves', can make a world of difference - particularly in the high-stress, high-pressure environment that we work in, where self-care often falls by the wayside. Nurses and healthcare workers are prone to burnout and may face challenges that no other profession faces.
