Use our online tool to test your emotional resilience
i-resilience is an online tool to help build resilience, confidence, adaptability and social support.
i-resilience assesses your level of personal resilience at work and identifies potential risks. You will receive a personalised report advising what actions to take to boost your resilience.
Developed by expert business psychologists Robertson Cooper, i-resilience is free to use for Nursing Standard readers.
Simply complete the personality questionnaire (which will open in a new window on your computer) and then download your personalised report. Your report is entirely confidential and only accessible to you. It provides clear and concise feedback on how to improve your resilience at work.
The nature of nurses' work can take a heavy physical and emotional toll which, if left unchecked, can have a detrimental effect on patient care. Employers can promote staff wellbeing by providing appropriate support, leadership and supervision.
