Abstract:
Purpose: Nurses are challenged to maintain resilience against burnout and develop successful coping skills in the work environment. The purpose of this project was to develop a comprehensive program to alert nurses to the risks of cumulative stress and provide training for self-care promotion to minimize the negative effects of compassion fatigue. The Nursing Leaders in an Academic Medical Center noticed symptoms of compassion fatigue in the nursing staff. After obtaining a recruitment and retention grant from the Florida Center for Nursing, the investigators consulted with Dr. Charles Figley, traumatolgist, resulting in a shift in focus from a negative to a positive approach. Based on his recommendation a life coach model was implemented. The Life Coaches facilitated participants in setting appropriate goals and ensured consistent follow up. Method: After approval by IRB, thirty nurse mangers and staff enrolled in a 20-week partnership with a life coach to develop an individualized prosperity plan. The nurse and life coach had three face-to-face meetings and weekly telephone calls. Utilizing both a quantitative and qualitative study design, participants completed pre and post-test assessments and a brief interview. In addition, several continuing education programs on self- care promotion and stress reduction were offered to nurse managers and staff. Findings: Eighteen nurses completed the program and the four surveys. The "How Vulnerable Are You to Stress" is a 20- item survey with a 5-point Likert-type scale. Paired samples t-test showed that the mean difference was statistically significant (p=.00). The "Satisfaction with Life Scale" survey is a five item, 7-point Likert-type scale. The mean difference was statistically significant (p=.002).The "Life Satisfaction Self Evaluation" is an eight item, 10-point Likert-type scale. Three items with statistically significant changes were family, emotions, social areas. The "Professional Quality of Life Scale" has thirty items; it is composed of three discrete scales- Compassion Satisfaction Scale, Burnout Scale, and Trauma/Compassion Fatigue Scale. The Compassion Satisfaction Scale reveled the mean difference was not statistically significant (p>.05). Burnout Scale showed that the mean difference was statistically significant (p=.001). Trauma/Compassion Fatigue Scale showed that the mean difference was not statistically significant (p>.05) but two questions in this scale were significant. A post-intervention interview was conducted utilizing an interview guide with six open-ended questions. All the participants expressed the program was a positive experience. Specifically it helped with organization, setting goals, making realistic plans, accountability and setting priorities. The most helpful aspect of the program was having a consistent non-judgmental person to give feedback and suggestions. Discussion: The Prosperity Plan program was very successful as demonstrated by significant improvement in Life Satisfaction scores. During the post-invention interview nurses expressed being better able to deal with stress. It met the goal of retention because all nurses interviewed plan to remain at the hospital for two years.
