Hoos Well Research and Continuous Improvement Activities

Hoos Well seeks to improve our programs and strategies through ongoing research and continuous improvement activities that help us ensure the effectiveness, quality, and relevance of our programs to your needs.

Research projects underway

Comparative effectiveness of Hoos Well programs for mental and emotional well-being

The purpose of this research project (UVA IRB-SBS Protocol #4384) is to compare the effectiveness of two virtual psychological skills training programs (Healthy Minds @Work and the eM Life mindfulness resource) in:

  • Reducing perceived stress, depression, anxiety, and burnout
  • Increasing well-being, quality of life, coping skills, resilience, and life satisfaction
  • Enhancing social support, sense of community at work, engagement, and psychological safety.

This research may also help to determine which elements and format of virtual psychological skills training programs are most likely to support individual and organizational well-being.
