Another problem that causes serious consequences at healthcare to the population, and also corroborates to nurses' high level of tension, is the lack of training on a regular basis for these professionals, affecting the efficiency and speed of nursing care to the victims of trauma and clinical emergencies that comes to the unit.…”

These factors contribute to chronic fatigue which favors, in the process of self-care, options that lead to a practicality that requires less effort, whether in diet, leisure, physical activity, or in various aspects of quotidian life (1) , often consisting of less healthy alternatives.…”
