Background and Aim: Nursing is one of the stressful professions in which the development of stress management skills is necessary to reduce stress. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of educational intervention based on participatory methods on stress management in cardiac surgery nurses.
Methods: The present study is a randomized controlled trial with a pre-test and one-month post-test follow-up. The statistical population included 42 nurses working in the departments of cardiac surgery, operating room, and heart ICU of Afshar Hospital in Yazd in 2019, who were randomly assigned to two tests and control groups. Data were collected using demographic and the Nursing Stress Scale (NSS) questionnaires. Consultation with the test problem-solving approach was conducted during 2 sessions in 8 hours as a workshop with the test group. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 16.
Results: The mean score of nursing job stress dimensions in the test group was 6.88 ± 2.36 and in the control group was 11.65 ± 5.13, which showed a statistically significant decrease compared to the control group in one month after the intervention (P ˂ 0.004). Indeed, nurses involved in stress management training programs reported lower job stress.
Conclusion: The nurses' participation in stress management training programs reduced the job stress of nurses working in the cardiac surgery departments. Therefore, it is recommended that nursing managers hold stress management programs in the workplace and thereby improve the quality of nursing services.
