Aim

To synthesize the evidence on the effectiveness of interventions aiming to promote or improve the mental health of primary care nurses.

Background

Primary care nurses have been found to have high levels of emotional exhaustion and to be at increased risk of suffering from burnout, anxiety and depression. Given the increasingly critical role of nurses in high-performing primary care, there is a need to identify interventions that can effectively reduce these professionals’ mental health problems and promote their well-being.
