Healthcare professionals are experiencing unprecedented levels of occupational stress and burnout. Higher stress and burnout in health professionals is linked with the delivery of poorer quality, less safe patient care across healthcare settings.
In order to understand how we can better support healthcare professionals in the workplace, this study from Johnson et al. evaluated a tailored resilience coaching intervention comprising a workshop and one-to-one coaching session addressing the intrinsic challenges of healthcare work in health professionals and students.
The authors found preliminary evidence that the intervention was well received and effective, but further research using a randomised controlled design will be necessary to confirm this.
