Summary:

A stress response causes specific biological changes, such as increased heart rate, bronchodilation, horripilation (goose bumps), increased blood pressure, increased sweat production, decreased immune response, decreased insulin and increased blood glucose. The volume of research in this area is growing rapidly, and it is safe to conclude that immune modulations caused by psychosocial stressors or interventions directly affect health outcomes. In the 2011 American Nurses Association survey of health and safety concerns, 74% of nurses reported effects of stress and overwork as their number one concern. This result is up slightly from the 2001 survey. A recent publication reports that nurses experience high levels of workplace stress with negative effects on both individual nurses and the organizations that employ them. This module provides information to help healthcare professionals manage their own stress and patients’ stress.

Objectives:

The goal of this stress management continuing education program is to help nurses and massage therapists better manage stress in patients and themselves. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss three physiological responses to stressors
  • Explain two ways to reduce patient stress
  • Describe three methods healthcare professionals can use to promote self-care and the reduction of physiological stress responses
