Through project research*, it’s been identified that nurses and midwives as professionals are great at looking after others, but not necessarily themselves. In this episode, Norah is joined by Karen McGowan, Nurse & INMO President, Davina Ramkissoon – Wellness Director of Zevo Health and Ann Marie O’Reilly Intellectual Disabilities Nurse to talk about self-care and self-compassion in nursing and midwifery and if it is ok to ‘just get on with it’?
