"Thank you Avi , for conducting the Joy-Care session at our Caregivers’ Event at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
Caregivers are under a lot of stress and we wanted to start the Caregivers’ event by giving a release to some of their pent-up emotions. Your session exceeded our expectations. We were worried that it would be difficult for Singaporeans to open up, but somehow you managed to do this and had 100 percent participation from the audience. The session brought laughter and smiles to their faces and we could see that some were visibly relieved.
This helped to set a good tone for the rest of the day’s activities.
Thank you for helping to conduct a great session."

Nurse Burnout and Patient Satisfaction
Published: February 2004:By: Vahey DC, Aiken LH, Sloane DM, Clarke SP and Vargas D In: Medical Care, 42(2), pp.II-57-II-66 Publisher: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
Results: Nurses working in units they rated as "good environments" were less likely to suffer emotional exhaustion or above-average depersonalization (elements of nurse burnout); and patients in units with nurses who reported higher levels of personal accomplishment were more than twice as likely to be highly satisfied with their care. This study is unique in the literature in that it illustrates empirical evidence that nurse burnout is a significant factor influencing patient satisfaction with care, and it identifies modifiable characteristics of nurses' work environments that contribute to nurse burnout.
Conclusions: Improvements in nurses' work environments in hospitals have the potential to simultaneously reduce nurses' high levels of job burnout and risk of turnover and increase patients' satisfaction with their care.
