A few months ago I wrote the blog below about resilience in nursing, it received a lot of attention on Twitter and through the blogs comments section (the original blogs is posted HERE) which is why I thought that it would make a good basis for a Twitter discussion:


I think that’s it’s time to open up the debate on the term resilience – I have a problem with resilience, I know its en-vogue currently for nurses to be resilient, and in theory I get why, but in reality I am not so sure.

How about we start this with a definition …. The internet says resilience is:


I think this is where my problem with resilience starts – recovering quickly, bouncing back and toughness are concepts I find hard to reconcile as a nurse.  Here’s the rub .. I don’t think that I am resilient.  When things upset me I often take them to heart, I can find it hard to recover quickly and spring back and I am not sure that I need to.  I feel what I need are good support networks and self-care so that I can reflect and grow from experiences.  When something adverse happens, I don’t want to be resilient, I want to be human, but I want someone to ask me if I am OK … in the same way that I would ask them.

I recall a particularly tough day whilst working as a care home manager a good few years ago now.  I felt really ill, I had a really bad head cold, I had been in work since 5 am, I was dealing with a number of incidents and short staffing.  I had a phone conversation with my manager during which I asked if it was ok if I left early as I wasn’t feeling 100% and had been at work since very early … she told me I had to be more resilient.  I got off the phone and sat and cried.  Whilst I was crying at my desk another of my managers walked in – he asked, “are you ok?” Of course, I wasn’t but he sat and listened. We brainstormed a few things to help with the staffing and the incidents and he told me to go home and rest.  The first manager epitomised everything I hate about the term resilience and the second show cased everything that is right about supporting one another.

Having had a few discussions on Twitter about resilience I can understand that it’s not the term itself but perhaps how we apply it.  With this in mind it is only fair to look at resilience in the context of health (and not just an internet, black and white – definition) Murray (2014)states:

Resilience can be defined as ‘the ability of an individual to cope with and adapt positively to adverse circumstances’. Resilience has been identified as comprising a serious of personality traits such as optimism, self-efficacy and hardiness which enable an individual to cope with increased adversity. Increasingly, resilience is viewed as the combination of internal and external factors, a dynamic process which develops over time and one which can be learned” 

I agree that we need this! I agree that as nurses we need to be able to cope with increased adversity and yes I love that resilience could be a combination of self-care (internal factors) and support (external factors) I do take exception to the word “hardiness” here but let’s set that aside as the definition within the context of health sounds pretty utopian to me and perhaps what we should all be aiming for. To me though this description is not resilience as I have seen it.

This leads me to think that resilience is the wrong word, I think that it does what we are trying to achieve in nursing a huge disservice.  This isn’t about toughness or bounce-back-ability this is about support and self-care. It’s about what we do to take care of ourselves and what our colleagues and organisations do to take care of us.

So what is the way forward? How do we equip the nursing profession with the skills to cope with adversity? I don’t think that anyone has or ever will become more resilient by a colleague telling them that they need to be resilient! The term resilience, when used like this, seems rather like telling the profession to “man up”! This is not healthy or productive.

I rather like what the police are doing…. Have you heard of Oscar Kilo? There is a great link here that explains all.


The Oscar Kilo website states:

 “We need to get the message to our staff that “it’s ok not to be ok”


Oscar Kilo doesn’t talk about resilience it talks about health and wellbeing.  It acknowledges that policing is tough and that people are affected by the things they see and the role they have but it focusses on support, health and wellbeing.


I guess at the heart of this is that I feel that the term “resilience” is a spoiled fruit.  I can see that there are good intentions by encouraging nursing and nurses to be resilient but I don’t think that this term can be used as its synonymous with hardiness, bouncing back, being tough and manning up … and do you know what … it is ok not to be ok!  I think that we should acknowledge that nursing is tough and learn and grow form this, support ourselves and each other … ask that question to yourself and to colleagues … are you ok today?


So with this in mind here are some of the questions I thought it would be good to explore:

  • What are your thoughts about the term resilience?
  • Is resilience needed in nursing?
  • Do you think we should ditch the term resilience in nursing? 
  • What do you think about "it's ok not to be OK"?
  • Are nurses supported enough to "not be OK"? 
  • How can we recognise when we are not OK and need support?
  • What can each of us do to support colleagues who are not OK?

 Chat Summary

 

I came into this discussion really hating the term "Resilience" - I have met many managers who have used the term to tell people to "man up" and get on with things and the term has, for a long time, been a very negative thing to me.  The discussion started by asking people what they thought about the term "Resilience" and it was clear that some people liked the term whilst other agreed with me and had concerns:
















 Although I take the points that we need to overcome difficult situations and stay focussed despite the challenges we face as nurses I do have concerns, I agree with @ProfJuneG about when she stated the term can be used in a judgemental way and I feel that @PuncLasseterZoe also has a good point that does "resilience" make us feel like we have to be strong 24/7? I am not sure that is possible and know that there have been many times in my career where I have been deeply affected by the things I have faced and I have not been strong.  I was interested to read peoples responses to Question 2 around if resilience is needed in nursing:













 

Many of the participants felt that resilience is needed in nursing though some had reservations and mentioned "being human" I remain unconvinced that it is resilience we need.  I think that there are times when we need to acknowledge that we are not ok and for it to be ok for us to seek support and reflection.  I think we do have to start thinking less about being superheroes and more about being human - as human beings it is ok not to be ok.  Question 3 explored this concept a little more:












People seemed to warm to this concept and the discussion moved to explore how we can support nurses who are not ok:















 

Again I think that @ProfJuneG made a very important point in that we need to develop our own support mechanisms and networks, we have to find our own ways of coping that work for us.  But i also thing that we have a responsibility to our colleagues, to care for and support them, to ask them if they are ok, to ensure they get time out when needed, to ensure they are rested and listened to.  In addition to this we have a responsibility to ourselves to recognise when we need support and help:











 

The final question addressed how we can support others: 












As the discussion drew to a close I started to reflect on whether I felt any more comfortable about the term "resilience" and the answer is no I do not.  I still feel that what is needed is the acknowledgement that we are not ok ... and the workplace culture that allows us not to be ok.  We need support and kindness, we need space to develop coping mechanisms  and networks.  However I do understand that when some people talk of resilience this is what they are talking about, I understand that not all people use the term in a judgmental way, and I understand that we are perhaps talking about the same things but in a different way.  


Nursing is tough, we spend our working lives caring for others and that is bound to have a knock on effect.  Towards the end of the discussion this tweet caught my eye:



We all need looking after from time to time - maybe we should be less reticent about admitting it.
