Critical Resilience for Nurses: an evidence-based guide to survival and change in the NHS

Coming out next year, to be published by Routledge, this book exposes the resilience industry and argues instead that nurses need to join together and understand the structural and political causes of stress and distress in the workplace. Here are the chapter titles:

1       Resilience: where did it come from?
A summary of research on resilience and its use in nursing

2          The limits of resilience and an introduction to the concept of ‘critical resilience’

3       How compassionate are you?

4       Nursing work is difficult work and what to do about it

5       Nursing: whose idea was it?

6       Politicians—part of the solution and part of the problem

7       Being a student, being a worker

8       Critical resilience and critical theory

9       Nursing and social media
