Interventions to Promote or Improve the Mental Health of Primary Care Nurses: A Systematic Review

This systematic review, published in the Journal of Nursing Management, sought to synthesize the evidence on the effectiveness of interventions aiming to promote or improve the mental health of primary care nurses. Eight articles reporting on seven unique studies met all eligibility criteria. The authors found moderate-weak evidence that primary, secondary and combined interventions can reduce burnout and stress in nurses practicing in community-based health care settings. The results highlight a need for the implementation and evaluation of new strategies tailored for community-based nurses practicing in primary care.
