Abstract

Understanding how health professionals manage distress in paediatric health settings represents an area that has been understudied. The current study aimed to explore resilience amongst staff working in a paediatric trauma health setting. Seven health professionals were recruited and the data analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Approach (IPA). The findings highlight the importance of self-awareness in understanding resilience amongst professionals working in this context. This was particularly in considering the professional and physical limitations of the individual. Further research is recommended in further developing a theoretical understanding of resilience in this context. Recommendations for supporting professionals in maintaining and developing resilience are made.
