Lecture Overview

Healthcare and personal care workers are often on the frontline when times get tough and working in such high-pressure environments can cause us to neglect our self-care. Mark Aitken from Nurse & Midwife Support reminds us that our health matters, and taking care of ourselves will, in turn, improve the outcomes of those we care for.
