The questions, written by Sheila Hardy, relate to her expert article, The power of listening: stress, distress, and depression, which explains how practice nurses can respond to and help to alleviate stress, distress, and depression.

On completion of this activity, you should be able to:

  • identify causes of stress, distress, and depression
  • recognise when a patient may be experiencing stress, distress, or depression
  • understand how you can help a patient with these conditions.
