Job satisfaction in haemodialysis nurses : results from a two country study

Hayes, Bronwyn, Bonner, Ann, & Douglas, Clint (2012) Job satisfaction in haemodialysis nurses : results from a two country study. In 41st European Dialysis and Transplant Nurses Association/European Renal Care Association, 15-18 September 2012, Strasbourg, France. (Unpublished)


• Australian nurses report lower levels of job satisfaction than the broader working population and perceive they have limited influence over important workplace decisions. • Higher levels of nurse job satisfaction is positively linked to improved quality of care, patient outcomes and staff retention. • Identifying factors that contribute to job satisfaction can improve retention of highly skilled and specialised haemodialysis nurses. • Contributors to job satisfaction and current levels of job satisfaction are poorly understood in the Australia and New Zealand context.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
