    Work/life balance may vary across cultures and occupations. We interviewed 20 Thai nurses to investigate how they facilitate the interface of work and family, and used grounded theory to analyse data. Conflict is experienced but differs between single and married and younger and older. It appears facilitated where work is also experienced as a ‘family’. We will discuss in the light of existing models, and highlight the importance of cross-cultural differences to facilitate work/life balance.
