Workplace behaviours.

AS a PhD student at Massey University, under the supervision of the healthy work group, I am interested in exploring nurses' understandings and perceptions of certain workplace behaviours. The main aim of this group is to contribute to the creation and maintenance of healthy and safe workplaces in New Zealand, and there are many such initiatives under way.

My thesis primarily focuses on the nursing profession, since research indicates there are several risk factors to the health and well-being of nurses in the workplace. I would like to invite Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand readers to participate in this research study. I am seeking participants who are:

* currently working and/or training in a nursing role within a district health board or the primary health care sector,

* within the greater Auckland region,

* and have worked in the nursing profession for at least six months as of March 10, 2015.

The study involves a one-off, face-to-face interview, at a location convenient for you, and is expected to take approximately 30 minutes. It will involve responding to four hypothetical scenarios. No questions will be asked about your own personal experiences and you will be guaranteed complete anonymity and confidentiality. Should you have any further questions about the study, please email me at N.J.D'Souza@massey.ac.nz or phone 021 175 7444.
