Resilience and Stress Management Program Helps Health Professionals

Resilience and Stress Management Program Helps Health Professionals

The Promoting Resilience in Stress Management (PRISM) program for health professionals and staff is feasible, acceptable and associated with improved outcomes, according to a study published online July 1 in JAMA network opened

Joyce P. Yi-Frazier, Ph.D., of the Seattle Children’s Research Institute, and colleagues assessed the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary results of a skills-based coaching program designed to reduce stress and build resilience in 132 hospital health professionals and staff. The program included six weekly one-hour group sessions with seven weeks of follow-up.

The researchers found that 91 percent of participants completed the program and 88 percent were satisfied. Participants indicated a need for more PRISM with longer or extra sessions. After the program there were improvements in participant-reported resilience, stress, anxiety and burnout exhaustion.

“The PRISM at Work program is designed to help HCWs and hospital staff manage stress and improve resilience through a manual skills-based coaching curriculum. In this pilot cohort study conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic, we found PRISM at Work feasible and acceptable for those who agreed to participate,” the authors write. “Our data also suggest that PRISM reception was associated with increased perceptions of resilience and decreased feelings of anxiety, stress, and burnout from pre- to post-program assessments.”
