Flourish Inaugural Year 2018-2019

Our inaugural year of this resident wellbeing initiative involved a 6-week small groups program, that focused on the CREATION Health principles of wellness. Each group meeting focused on core principles: choice, trust, interpersonal relationships, and outlook. The format of the groups included education, discussion, experiential art, and self-reflection activities.
 
Residents from each program in the AHS Central South Division attended these 90-minute groups for six weeks over a four-month period. Those who consented completed a survey package of validated measures administered by AdventHealth Whole Person Research.
 
Key findings from the Flourish pilot:

  • Improvements in trust (72.4%) and communication skills (74.5%) were reported among residents
  • Many reported to like the small group format
  • Residents prefer to have autonomy and the ability to choose how they integrate self-care

Here's what is new this year:

  • Freedom to choose from a variety of programs
  • Skill-based group offerings (e.g. cooking classes and a financial seminar)
  • Flexibility of time offerings
  • CREATION Life Incentives (receive points towards the $250 bonus)
