Very informative and thought provoking. We can all take something positive from this that we can put into place in our own lives in general, as well as in our nursing. Thank you.

Judy Berry

Very thought provoking in being aware and consciously making the decision to i. not gossip (so easy to engage in talk without realising it) ii. not answering messages etc - not much is so urgent that it can't wait until tomorrow. I think phones and social media has provided that 'answer straight away' concept and we need to learn that no, we don't have to. I find it slows life down when we can learn to separate these things :)
