Assessment 3 Scenario, clinical question & research paper for critical appraisal
You are an ACU student undertaking a degree in the Health Sciences. You are studying part time, and working part time to support yourself and are concerned that your busy schedule might lead to burnout. At your workplace, you are required to attend a mandatory training program on stress prevention to promote the wellbeing of employees in
your organisation. Firstly, you think this program will benefit you personally. Secondly, you think this program will benefit you because you want to deepen your understanding of the relationship between stress and resilience. You found a research paper on the topic and now you need to critically appraise the research paper.
