MASSAGING STAFF IN PALLIATIVE CARE FACILITIESNATIONWIDE; RELIGIOUS AND SECULAR; NURSES TO ADMIN/HR/FIN/EXEC
As stress is high amongst front-line staff in palliative care facilities, it affects the staff’s ability to care for patients at the end of life. Several studies have suggested that workplace stress is a health risk to staff in this specific nursing situation. We’re here to help reduce that.
WHY INVEST IN MASSAGE?
Stress levels are high amongst nurses in palliative care.
We understand the stresses that come about when dealing with dying, within the work environment, role conflicts, and issues with patients and their families. For a percentage of nurses, this takes a toll on their mental health. Which leads to ineffectiveness and inefficient work habits and those effects on the work environment.
Massage reduces stress, gives a point in time for stress to be released, reduces fatigue and helps clear the mind. Over time, massage leaves a deeper impact, and this then secondarily effects the work environment
Re-energised staff receiving massage during a day of constant giving helps clear their mind.
With massage helping fatigued and stressed staff at a healthy level of functioning at work, focus and clarity at work leads to higher levels of productivity.
Reducing turnover, retaining and attracting staff.
Massage can be used as a high-quality benefit to attract staff, as a major benefit such as regular massage can overcome the hesitation to work in an environment that is centred around death.
But the reason why massage works so well in this regard, is due to reason mentioned on the left, and that massage is empathetic touch.
Those who take up massage stand out from other facilities yet to come aboard the train, and can be marketed as such (in conjunction with some medical recruitment agencies).
