Developed by nurses, Nancy Farish, Jeanell Webb-Jones, and Jane Muir, to help their peers deal with the stress and burnout endemic to the field and worsened by COVID-19, Room to Reflect is a program which encourages healthcare workers to give themselves permission to address their stress. R2R is not a physical space, as most units don't have the ability to offer respite rooms. Rather, it's a collection, or "toolkit," of digital resources, including self-care and resiliency practices as well as educational resources, that support nurses in their challenging workplaces.
Additional information on the history of the project is available here. In the left column of the page there are videos and audio recordings by R2R creators with demonstrations on how to utilize the 4 W's and other offerings.
Learn more about the project from this video interview with Nancy, Jeanell, and Jane.
