Abstract

Objective: This study reports findings from a proof-of-concept trial designed to examine the feasibility and estimates the efficacy of the "Be Well, Work Well" workplace intervention. Methods: The intervention included consultation for nurse managers to implement changes on patient-care units and educational programming for patient-care staff to facilitate improvements in safety and health behaviors. We used a mixedmethods approach to evaluate feasibility and efficacy. Results: Using findings from process tracking and qualitative research, we observed challenges to implementing the intervention due to the physical demands, time constraints, and psychological strains of patient care. Using survey data, we found no significant intervention effects. Conclusions: Beyond educating individual workers, systemwide initiatives that respond to conditions of work might be needed to transform the workplace culture and broader milieu in support of worker health and safety.
