Research & Grants
Funding Agency Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Title Our Lady of the Lake University SBIRT Training Status Active Period 10/2015 - 9/2018 Role Consultant Grant Detail The goal of this study is to adapt a medical-education-based SBIRT curriculum (Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment for substance abuse) for psychology and social work graduate students, and to test its effectiveness on students? knowledge, attitudes, and clinical skills.
Funding Agency Texas Academy of Family Physicians Foundation Title Predictors of Family Physician Wellness and Burnout: An RRNet Study Status Active Period 8/2016 - 9/2018 Role Co-Investigator Grant Detail Predictors of Family Physician Wellness and Burnout: An RRNet Study
Study Purpose: The purpose of the study is to understand the demographic, psychological, environmental, and work-place characteristics that impact resilience and burnout among family medicine residents and physicians in Texas. Specifically, the study will attempt to understand factors related to the risk of burnout and investigate protective elements that can enhance physician resilience.
Subjects and Setting: Respondents will include approximately 120 family physician faculty and 300 family medicine residents across 11 residency programs associated with the Residency Research Network of Texas ( RRNeT). In addition, the study will seek approximately 20 family physicians in community practice in each of the 10 communities associated with our 11 RRNeT programs. Study Design. The researchers will develop an online survey using Survey Monkey. The surveys will be anonymous; no identifying information will be collected from the respondents. Surveys will be administered by the RRNeT champion at each Family Medicine Residency site. These RRNeT champions will also identify and survey 20 community-based physicians in their county.
Outcome Measures: The outcome measures of resilience, burnout, psychological flexibility and workplace stress will be measured using the Brief Resilience Scale, The Copenhagen Burnout Inventory, the Primary Care Provider Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (PCP-AAQ) and the Primary Care Provider Stress Checklist (PCP-SC) respectively. Respondents will also report personal characteristics such as age, gender, ethnicity, marital status, and household size.
Implications: The results of this study inform workplace policies and wellness programming for family medicine residents, faculty and community-based physicians. Results will be shared with each residency program and with the Texas Academy of Family Physicians to inform policies, programming, and support systems f
