Chinery W. Alleviating stress with humour: a literature review. J Perioper Pract. 2007;17(4):172, 174, 176-9 passim.
The use of humour was reviewed to establish whether it could be used constructively to reduce work-related stress within the perioperative environment. It is clear from the review that further research is required in order to gain a better understanding of the concept of humour and its uses in healthcare and it is hoped that this review will contribute towards the increasing body of knowledge in this field.
