Abstract (Summary)

Unmanaged stress produces both negative physical and psychological health effects on Emergency Department Healthcare Professionals (ED HPs) as well as having effects on workplace health and safety. In this descriptive study, the researcher analyzed Survey Monkey™ results to identity effective and ineffective stress management methods utilized by ED HPs. There were 16 ED HP participants and the survey was distributed via e-mail invitations over a one-month period during the summer of2013. California State University Long Beach Internal Review Board (CSULB IRB) approval for the study was obtained.

The data were collected using snowball sampling and included demographic data about the participant's work experience and multiple-choice data regarding current experiences with workplace stress coping. Descriptive data regarding the participant's ideas of effective stress management methods within the workplace were also obtained. Null hypotheses involved the reported beliefs of ED HPs regarding coping mechanisms present at the workplace and their general effectiveness.
