Abstract

Health care professionals experience significant stress in the workplace. Building opportunities for health care professionals to manage stress is essential. Children's Hospital of Wisconsin designed a holistic set of programs called the R&R Series to support the emotional, cognitive, and spiritual health of staff and assist staff in using self-care strategies to build resiliency. Six hundred seventy program evaluations were collected during a 1-year pilot series. Program participants were from a wide variety of departments throughout the health care system. Staff reported feeling more supported, being better able to manage work and life stress, and practicing the self-care techniques they learned. Programs such as the R&R Series are one way to promote the overall health and resiliency of health care professionals.
