Evaluation Report - March 2008
Healthy Workplace for Home & Community Care Nurses
There is considerable evidence to demonstrate that a healthy work environment is necessary for the recruitment and retention of nurses as well as the overall sustainability of the health system. Much has been written about the work environment in acute care settings; however, there is limited documentation about the working environment for nurses working in home and community care. VON Canada is interested in learning what the impact of the work environment is on the recruitment and retention of nurses providing home and community care. There is also limited documentation on the role and contribution volunteers make to the health care team in the home and community care setting.
This project will identify barriers in the home and community health care settings and develop strategies and promote practices that will lead to healthy work environments - this will lead to better outcomes for clients, health workers, and organizations.
