Abstract

Background: The healthcare sector is a significant producer of emissions globally and yet paradoxically cares for those who are most impacted by climate change. Purpose: This rapid review examined the role of the nurse in reducing emissions within the hospital setting. Methods: Literature meeting inclusion criteria were identified from 2009 to 2021, resulting in 11 primary research papers being reviewed. Finding: The review found that nurses, the largest profession within the healthcare workforce, are in a unique position to influence emissions reduction in the hospital setting. Conclusion: Whilst nurses have not reached their full potential in influencing emissions reduction, education, setting policy direction, and undertaking research are pivotal for the nursing profession to reduce emissions within the hospital setting.
