United Nurses of Alberta members are encouraged to participate in an anonymous occupational stress injury survey supported by the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions and conducted by the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment at the University of Regina.
This is the first anonymous Canada-wide assessment of occupational stress injuries, including post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety, amongst nurses.
Who should participate?
All nurses. The more nurses that participate, with or without mental health problems, the greater weight the collective voice will have in fostering better mental health for all Canadian nurses.
Participation will provide evidence for strategies and resources to support the mental health of all nurses. By participating, UNA members are supporting themselves and their peers to provide evidence that can inform appropriate resources for supporting nurses’ mental health.
The survey is available until August 31, 2019.
