Promoting Well-Being and Resilience for Pediatric Oncology Advanced Practice Nurses: An Evidence-Based Approach (204)

Occupational burnout adversely impacts the delivery of high-quality, compassionate care. Pediatric oncology advanced practice nurses (APNs) are at increased risk for burnout attributed to a high-stress environment, and the complexity of patient/family conditions. In 2019, the World Health Organization recognized burnout as an occupational phenomenon in the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases.
