Stress Management Tool for Caregivers


Researchers at the University of Colorado School of Medicine are working to develop a way to help reduce stress in caregivers who are caring for patients receiving stem cell transplants. 
While the needs of patients are always paramount, the ability of caregivers to balance the needs of patients receiving treatment with their own well-being is critical. Previous studies by this group have shown the efficacy of brief, in-person, one-on-one stress management intervention to reduce stress in caregivers.
Now, Nicole Amoyal, PhD, a clinical psychology postdoctoral fellow in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and a team of researchers are working to adapt this support to mobile devices, such as cell phones and computers, in ways that would allow caregivers to access evidence-based skills to manage stress, enhance intimacy, and increase support via video instruction.
