Job satisfaction, stress and burnout in haemodialysis nurses

Hayes, Bronwyn J. (2015) Job satisfaction, stress and burnout in haemodialysis nurses. Professional Doctorate by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


Haemodialysis nurses provide health care for people with end stage kidney disease leading to a unique, intense and complex interaction between nurses and patients. This study involved the development of a model which explains the relationships between the work environment, job satisfaction, stress and burnout of haemodialysis nurses in Australia and New Zealand. Results from this study identified that haemodialysis nurses, while being satisfied by their jobs, were also experiencing high levels of burnout. This study's novel contribution could lead to improving the retention of the nursing workforce which is crucial due to the growing global burden of chronic disease.
