COS-RN: The development of a Core Outcome Set for NHS Nurse Wellbeing

It is recognised that work pressures impact nurses' wellbeing, their ability to deliver care well, and the likelihood of staff staying in the NHS. Currently, there is no consensus on how the wellbeing of nurses working in the NHS (Registered nurses employed by the UK's NHS or by an NHS commissioned service) should be measured. This study aims to build on the Research Team's work to create a Core Outcome Set for Doctor Wellbeing by developing an evidenced consensus-based COS for NHS Nurse Wellbeing.

Aim

To develop a COS for NHS Nurse Wellbeing.
