Magnet4Europe: Improving Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Health Care Workplace

Project description

Protecting the health of healthcare workers

Doctors and nurses are not immune to burnout, which is a combination of exhaustion, cynicism and perceived inefficacy resulting from long-term job stress. In fact, workers in the healthcare sector experience burnout much more frequently than workers in other professions. The EU-funded Magnet4Europe project will develop an evidence-based model for the organisational redesign of clinical work environments in order to enhance workers’ wellbeing, retention, productivity and patient outcomes. Specifically, it will use a mixed-method design to determine direct and indirect individual and collective health outcomes and cost effectiveness. The aim is to improve mental health, reduce sickness absence and positively impact productivity and economic results through redesigned clinical work environments that promote mental health.
