Title CPSP as a Mediator or Resiliency and Coping Among Military Healthcare.
Publication Date 2013
Media Count 15p
Personal Author C. Weidlich
Abstract The purpose of the report is to update what is currently known about the resiliency, coping, and compassion fatigue of Army and Civilian Nurses, LPNs, and Medics who treat wounded Soldiers and whether these factors can be improved over a sustained period of time. The study was a longitudinal, correlational, cohort, pilot study formulated to examine the impact of CPSP training on resiliency, coping and compassion fatigue over time (prior to CPSP training and 30-days post-training) in a population of Army and Civilian Nurses, LPNs, and Medics at Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC) at Fort Bragg, NC. A prospective cohort pilot study was implemented to investigate the long-term effects of resiliency training (CPSP) on Army and Civilian Nurses, LPNs, and Medics (n = 93) over two time points at Womack Army Medical Center. A convenience sample of 120 Army and Civilian Nurses, LPNs, and Medics attending CPSP training at WAMC between February 2013 and June 2013 was planned for the study. The sample size sought was 120, factoring in outliers (2%) and a 30% attrition rate, obtaining questionnaires from 81 participants.
