The courage of compassion: supporting nurses and midwives to deliver high-quality care

The King's Fund has published a new report, The courage of compassion: supporting nurses and midwives to deliver high-quality care.

The report finds that staff stress, absenteeism and turnover in these professions have reached alarmingly high levels. This has been compounded by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has laid bare and exacerbated longer-term issues including chronic excessive workload, inadequate working conditions, staff burnout and inequalities, particularly among minority ethnic groups.
