Abstract

The quality of care that families and infants receive during their time on the neonatal unit will be influenced by the well-being of the people who care for them. The emotional work of caring for infants and families in this demanding setting often goes unrecognized and can result in stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue, which in turn are a threat to the quality of care. Resilience and well-being can be fostered by encouraging self-maintenance, supportive systems organization, providing a healthy working environment, education, and opportunities for reflection.
