Can a multimodal programme reduce job stress in ICU nurses?

Sabine Valera discusses results from this randomised clinical trial assessing whether a multimodal programme that includes education, roleplay, and debriefing could reduce job stress on ICU nurses in France. The prevalence of job strain was assessed by a questionnaire that evaluated psychological demand and decision latitude. Job stress was significantly reduced at 6 months among nurses in the 5-day intervention group (13%) compared with those in the control group (67%).

Full results from this trial were presented at the Hot Topics session at LIVES 2018 in Paris and published in JAMA.
