StressPal Frontline Now Eligible As a Continuing Education (CE) Activity

Program helps clinician participants build personal resilience and fulfillment; available with CME, CNE, APA and IPCE credits

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. – April 20, 2021 – StressPal, a leader in evidence-based resilience training for clinicians, today announced that StressPal Frontline: Essential Resilience Self-Care and Burnout Prevention is a CE Activity, jointly provided by Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and StressPal for physicians, registered nurses, psychologists and healthcare teams.

Hospitals, healthcare systems and related healthcare facilities face systemwide challenges that lead to clinician distress, burnout, turnover and shortages, while struggling to address growing patient safety concerns. Developed by clinicians, StressPal Frontline is private and secure online continuing medical education that provides training in essential resilience self-care for clinicians and other healthcare workers. The program unifies leading intervention strategies in practical, focused learning for immediate application, in a video-rich experience that’s personalized by the learner. Participants will be better able to apply a choice of multiple evidence-based strategies (cognitive, behavioral, and physical) that are personally relevant, even in the heat of the moment, and ultimately enhance interprofessional team work.

“These indispensable healthcare professionals perform near herculean work. Unprecedented changes in the health field over more than a decade threaten the viability of organizations and place crushing burdens on providers. With determined and sustained effort across many fronts, leadership in collaboration with physicians can make meaningful steps towards creating cultures of resilience. A key strategy in this complex puzzle is providing excellent professional development tools,” said Pennie Sempell, CEO and Co-Founder of StressPal. “Fortunately, the science is here for how to mindfully strengthen and rebuild this valuable asset – individual resilience – aligned with what you value. We are thrilled to have StressPal Frontline offered as a CME activity and a missing piece of that puzzle.”

Credits available for the StressPal Frontline CE Activity are:

  • Physicians – maximum of 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits
  • Nurses – 4.0 contact hours
  • Psychologists – 4.0 continuing education credits
  • Healthcare Team – 4.0 Interprofessional Continuing Education credits

Grounded in peer-reviewed research, this interactive program harnesses the brain’s complex capacity to change how the brain responds, adapts, learns and recovers from stressors and challenges, in more workable ways aligned with what one values. StressPal Frontline’s core training is grounded in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with an innovative integration of cognitive behavioral models and mindfulness exercises. Compelling storytelling in a video-rich environment creates an immersive experience that is concise, engaging and easy to follow.
