Expanded access and inclusion to entire healthcare workforce safeguards individual resilience, improves interprofessional communication and fulfilment

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. – July 13, 2022 – StressPal, a leader in evidence-based resilience training for clinicians, today announced that StressPal Frontline: Essential Resilience Self-Care and Burnout Prevention now offers post-training modules throughout the subscription and on renewal, and up to 24 Continuing Medical Education and Interprofessional Education credits for a wide range of clinicians and healthcare teams, jointly provided by the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and StressPal.

The StressPal program unifies leading intervention strategies in practical, focused learning for immediate application, in a video-rich experience that’s personalized by the learner, to cultivate psychological flexibility, resilience and interprofessional capacities. The accredited content, interactive videos and peer-mentoring tools are delivered to users conveniently in a confidential, secure environment. The core training is designed in bite-sized modules for completion over 4-6 weeks with resources, and new ongoing post-training support modules reinforce the skill-building.

The new post-training module includes 10 robust modules of interactive materials available to subscription model learners after completion of the core training. Learners and coaches interact with peers in their own dedicated online community and use the program’s platform to disseminate wellness news on any device, and in real time. Compelling storytelling in an animated, video-rich environment creates an immersive experience that is concise, engaging and easy to follow.

The increased credits available for the StressPal Frontline Continuing Education Activity are:

  • Physicians – maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits
  • Nurses – 12 contact hours (ANCC)
  • Psychologists – 12 continuing education credits (APA)
  • Healthcare Team – 12 Interprofessional Continuing Education credits

“Burnout and poor well-being impede a strong culture of safety in medicine. A rising number of clinicians and non-clinicians report dismay and symptoms of depression, anxiety and burnout, and are leaving, or plan to prematurely leave, their profession. Unfortunately, individual resilience is neither an innate nor a static condition.  It can be learned and ameliorated, and it can be degraded by persistent stressors, and by our own stress triggered-responses,” said Pennie Sempell, CEO and Co-Founder of StressPal. “While we may have little control over external stressors in the short run, we can gain control over how we respond to stressors and align our responses with what we value. Leadership can meaningfully support their workforce, and mitigate risks, by protecting the resilience of their broader teams and staff.  We are excited to offer StressPal Frontline as a concise, brain-based continuing education activity, and as a ready-to-use platform for the organization’s teams and mentors to interact, meet and share in real time, on any device. This dual approach of high value content and a private peer community is powerful.”
