Nurses take care of us, but who's taking care of them? With the outbreak of SARS, many have become ill or are in quarantine, and many others are taking on long hours and additional responsibilities in patient care. And, this at a time when the profession was already in crisis over severe shortages and unstable working conditions. Here to discuss the state of nursing are Doris Grinspun, executive director of the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario and Diane McLeod, Vice President of the Central Region of the Victorian Order of Nurses, a non-profit agency devoted to community care. This show contains a Your Health item "Sjogrens Disease".
