Safer Nursing 24/7 in New Zealand: A fatigue management perspective
Dr Valerie O’Keeffe, PhD, Flinders University, South Australia
Fatigue arising from shift work may adversely impact nurses’ safety, health and wellbeing, increase risk to patients, and create challenges for effective healthcare delivery.
This presentation discusses the National Code of Practice for the management of shift work to mitigate nurses’ fatigue, based on data from a national survey of New Zealand public hospital nurses.
The Code provides evidence-informed guidance on optimal shift design through collaboratively implementing a Fatigue and Shift Work Management System (FSMS).
The Code adopts a flexible and world-leading approach with the potential to improve outcomes for nurses, patients and healthcare management, with applicability to Australian practices.
