Provider Resilience App Description

The fast pace of military operations and frequent deployments affect the entire military community. For health care providers treating military personnel, the intense demands on their time and personal resources can lead to burnout, compassion fatigue, and secondary traumatic stress. Through psychoeducation and self-assessments, Provider Resilience gives frontline providers tools to keep themselves productive and emotionally healthy as they help our nation’s service members, veterans, and their families. The Provider Resilience home screen gives a quick snapshot of the user’s overall resilience rating – generated through user self-assessments – and a reminder clock showing how long since the user last took a day off. Compassion fatigue, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress ratings can also be viewed in automatically generated graphs, allowing users to monitor their professional quality of life over time. Provider Resilience also features stress-busting and compassion satisfaction-building tools. Videos by service members describing the positive impact health care providers had in their battles with stigma, depression and other issues help users remember why they do what they do. Stretches, daily reflection cards, and Dilbert comics give users a break from daily stress. Provider Resilience was developed by psychologists at the National Center for Telehealth & Technology, the Defense Department’s primary agency for applying innovative technology to issues of psychological health and traumatic brain injury.

    This is one of the best apps to help therapists remember to take care of themselves. Thank you! As a supervisor I recommend it for all of my staff
  • Very useful

    As a therapist, taking care of oneself can be difficult. I think this app is very helpful at monitoring oneself and providing tools as well. Perhaps, the humor portion might be screened, as one user suggested. Overall, great app.
  • Problematic content in tools section

    By Dawnus Maximus
    I love the idea of this app, but couldn't believe what I saw yesterday when I selected the I Need a Laugh tool and got a Dilbert comic featuring someone's brain exploding out of the back of their head, especially as I'd just been listening to a patient's combat trauma which featured seeing the back of someone's head after they'd been shot in the face. What an awful "humor" selection for an app supposedly designed to support therapists who specialize in treating trauma.
  • Good reminders, needs a little more depth

    By mpotoczniak
    It would be great to make this tool have a little more feedback. You answer a ton of questions but the feedback is the meter on the dashboard.

    Froze up after 30 seconds of use. Not much use to me that way.

    Froze up, deleted it and started over. Froze up again. I like the idea, but this needs some work before it's really ready for use.

    Freezes up & no new information. If you don't already know what's contained in this app, you shouldn't be taking care of patients.
