Nurses' experiences, expectations, and preferences for mind-body practices to reduce stress
BMC Nursing, 04/22/2011
Kemper KJ et al. – Most nurses interested in mind–body training already engage in such practices. They have greater expectations about spiritual and emotional than physical benefits, but are willing to participate in studies and to collect biomarker data. Recruitment may depend more on convenience than a program's scientific basis or reputation. Knowledge of participants' baseline experiences, expectations, and preferences helps inform future training and research on mind–body approaches to reduce stress.
