Education Can Up Emotional Intelligence in Residents

TUESDAY, Sept. 25, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Following an educational intervention, residents from pediatrics and med-ped residency programs have an increase in total emotional intelligence (EI), according to a study published online Sept. 20 in Advances in Medical Education and Practice.

Ramzan Shahid, M.D., from the Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Ill., and colleagues examined whether educational intervention increases the overall EI of residents. A total of 21 residents from pediatrics and med-ped residency programs volunteered to complete an online self-report EI survey before and after an educational intervention. The intervention focused on developing four EI skills: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and social skills.

The researchers found that, compared with before the intervention, there was a significant increase in total EI median scores after the educational intervention (114 versus 110; P < 0.004). There was also a significant increase in the stress management composite median score (111 versus 105; P < 0.001) and in the resident's overall wellness score (111 versus 104; P = 0.003).

"Teaching EI skills related to the areas of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and social skill may improve stress management skills, promote wellness, and prevent burnout in resident physicians," the authors write.
