November 28, 2018 | Strategic Insights for Health System
Multimodal programs that feature simulation, education, role-playing, and debriefing may be effective at reducing job stress among nurses working in the intensive care unit (ICU), according to a November 20, 2018, article in JAMA. The authors conducted a randomized clinical trial featuring 198 nurses working at eight adult ICUs in France between February 2016, and April 2017. The nurses were randomly assigned to either a control group or an intervention group. The intervention group received a five-day course that involved nursing theory recap, situational role-playing using simulation, and debriefing sessions.
