Environmental scan summary

The Knowledge and Implementation Hub team undertook a desktop environmental scan to find high-quality practical resources on staff burnout. These resources are now available in the Resource Collection of the Hub. To read more about our environmental scan process, see the PDF report below.

What we did

In November 2022, we conducted structured searches using the Advanced Search version of Google alongside targeted searches of relevant organisational websites. We also consulted the ARIIA Evidence Advisory Group on Staff Burnout to suggest resources to add to our Resource Collection.

Resources had to be Australian, freely available and useful for practice. They also had to meet certain quality criteria such as currency (last 5 years), author or organisation credibility and objectivity, and content accuracy and depth of coverage.

Keeping the collection current

The environmental scan process was repeated in October 2023. The Knowledge and Implementation Hub team will repeat the scan process at scheduled intervals to ensure the resource content for staff burnout in aged care remains current.

What we found

We identified 31 Australian resources on staff burnout. The resources found through this process are in a variety of formats including reports, webpages, policy document, podcast, webinar, e-Learning, video, services, blogs, and toolkits giving a range of strategies which may be useful to aged care workers and organisations. Australian resources on staff burnout in aged care are targeted at a wide audience range including managers, service providers, aged care workers, and healthcare professionals.
