ProVent is a place where healthcare staff and students can express, explore and educate each other. Unfortunately, a lot of healthcare workers are suffering from a stress related illness or burnout. This can cause high staff and student attrition and an increase in suicide rates.
At ProVent we allow healthcare students and staff to share experiences in order to learn, reflect and develop. Also, it will be a platform for healthcare related questions, video content, relevant literature and much more.
The money from crowdfunding will be used to create an online service that is exclusively tailored to healthcare staff and students.
As a final year student nurse myself I understand too well how the pressures of the healthcare system can effect the mental health and well-being of the staff and students. Also, recently statistics have been showing the increase in need for support for the healthcare staff and students.
In 2017, 300 nurses alone committed suicide.
1 in 4 student nurses drop out before graduation due to feeling unsupported.
It is about time we looked after the people who work tirelessly to look after us!
