TitleStress in hospital medicine: a problem for key medical staff
TypeJournal article
AuthorsAllen, I.
Abstract

Many factors which contribute to stress in the workplace apply to both consultants and ward sisters. Both groups find that their roles have become more complex while they have increasingly lost control of their own clinical and professional territory in a managerial culture. The erosion of the key relationship between consultants and ward sisters is of concern and the need for teamworking is insufficiently recognized.
