Preventive staff-support interventions for health workers

Health workers need to be supported to reduce job-related stress, prevent burnout and improve motivation. This review identified 10 studies involving 716 health workers aimed at assessing the effects of preventive staff-support interventions. Eight studies involved short to medium-term training in stress management techniques, given predominantly to nurses in secondary and tertiary care settings. Four of these studies demonstrated beneficial effects of stress management training interventions in reducing some measures of job-related stress over the short-term. However, due to inadequate follow- up it is not clear whether these benefits are sustainable over longer periods. Most studies had several methodological shortcomings. Two studies involved management interventions to improve job satisfaction and absenteeism. The evidence from these two studies is insufficient to conclude that there is clear benefit from management interventions for staff support.
