Burnout continues to be a significant problem that negatively affects healthcare providers, especially nursing staff in acute care settings, such as the emergency department. Burnout is the state and experience of continued and prolonged exposure to depersonalization, loss of motivation, emotional exhaustion, and reduced personal accomplishment (Harris & Griffin, 2015; Hutson Hendy, 2016). Burnout is manifested through depersonalization, having a loss of compassion and concern, a decreased sense of personal accomplishment from work, and emotional exhaustion from feeling emotionally drained (Li et al., 2018). The literature on burnout lacks a systemic analysis of evidence-based interventions that can mitigate burnout among emergency nurses. The purpose of this DNP project is to determine the effect of implementing components of the Cultural Change Toolkit (CCT) on burnout among emergency nurses. The CCT, developed by Adams, Hollingsworth, and Osman (2019), is one of the few interventions cited in the literature to decrease burnout among medical staff in acute care settings. Over a seven-week period, this Doctor of Nursing Practice change project implemented components of the CCT intervention and measured nursing burnout both before and after the intervention using the Oldenburg Burnout Inventory scale. The results of this project found that the total burnout value for the sample pre-intervention was 2.57 + 0.34 and the mean value for burnout post-intervention was 2.54 + 0.34. The paired t-test comparing these values indicated that the CCT did not significantly change these scores (p= 0.71). Therefore, the data analysis addressing the PICOT question indicates that the implementation of components of the CCT over a seven-week period in nurses employed in an emergency department does not significantly decrease their burnout.
