GRACE program supports nurses, improves patient satisfaction

A recent study in The Journal of Nursing Administration highlighted the efficacy of a brief health care professional support program called GRACE. The program was delivered during a two-year period to eight clinical units at a midsized hospital to a largely white (68%) and female (81%) participant pool comprised primarily of employed nurses (66%). Results showed the program improved providers’ self-compassion and patients’ satisfaction. After program delivery, participants also reported increased understanding and confidence around work-related stress and burnout.
