Abstract [en]

The goal of the study is to design and test the efficacy of the online intervention dedicated to medical professionals and aimed at reducing their work–related stress and job burnout (primary outcomes) as well as decreasing depression, secondary traumatic stress, and increasing their work engagement (secondary outcomes). The content of the intervention is focused on enhancing personal resources: self–efficacy and perceived social support, and is based on the theoretical framework of cultivation and enabling hypotheses. According to the cultivation hypothesis, people with higher self–efficacy are more likely to reach out and obtain social support when needed, whereas enabling hypothesis suggests the reverse relationship: using members of social network as models—in particular those that are similar and/or face similar situations—or benefiting from their verbal assurance can increase the sense of efficacy. This study will allow for an experimental verification of these hypotheses through testing the efficacy of evidence- based, CBT-framed internet intervention.

This is a randomised controlled trial with two experimental conditions and two active comparators: 1) self-efficacy and perceived support sequential enhancement (cultivation hypothesis), 2) perceived support and self-efficacy sequential enhancement (enabling hypothesis), 3) self-efficacy enhancement (active comparator), and 4) perceived social support enhancement (active comparator). The exercises comprising the intervention are designed based on evidence-supported strategies to strengthen self-efficacy and perceived social support, and additionally, users are able to benefit from optional content: relaxation, mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, and lifestyle modules; all designed within the framework of cognitive- behavioral therapy. We expect self-efficacy and perceived social support to mediate the relationships between condition assignment and given outcomes, and for these relationships tobe moderated by participants’ expectations about the intervention. The efficacy of theintervention will be assessed at baseline (T1), post-intervention (T2), and six and twelve months after baseline (T3 and T4 respectively). We plan to recruit a total of N = 400 participants.

Verifying the efficacy of Med-Stress intervention will allow for the experimental test of the cultivation vs enabling effects of self-efficacy and perceived social support on work-related stress and its consequences.
