Nurses' Mental Health and Experiences of Leaves of Absence and Healthy Return to Work


The global pandemic has exacerbated health and mental health concerns for nurses, such as lack of access to personal protective equipment (PPE), fear of infecting family members, isolation from family members, increased emotional and physical exhaustion and inability to take time off. But mental health concerns among nurses predated the pandemic. Come hear about the Healthy Professional Worker Partnership that aims to identify interventions to better support nurses’ mental health and facilitate healthy return to work. Share your experiences and find out how to support this research.  

Join RNAO's CEO, Doris Grinspun, along with the following guest speakers:

  • Abby Ayoub (University of Ottawa)
  • Melanie Lavoie-Tremblay (McGill University)
