The Promoting Resilience in Stress Management (PRISM) program for health care workers and staff is feasible, acceptable, and associated with improved outcomes, according to a study published online July 1 in JAMA Network Open.
Joyce P. Yi-Frazier, Ph.D., from the Seattle Children’s Research Institute, and colleagues assessed the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary outcomes of a skills-based coaching program designed to reduce stress and build resilience among 132 hospital health care workers 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 reported being satisfied. Participants indicated a desire for more PRISM either with longer or additional sessions. Following the program, there were improvements seen in participant-reported resilience, stress, anxiety, and burnout-exhaustion.
