The proposed study will develop and pilot a fourteen-day assessment tailored for the high-demand schedule of residents through a smart phone intervention, EmoTrak.EmoTrak uses ecological measurement assessment (EMA), which solicits real-time user feedback at various time points across a series of days or weeks.
EmoTrak, Ecological Momentary Assessment of Emotion, Stress and Satisfaction Among Residents
The investigators will perform a randomized controlled trial that compares residents, using EmoTrak with a wait list control group. After two weeks, the active control group becomes the treatment group. All participants will be evaluated four times from at baseline to two months. The measures to explore for any pre and post change are stress reduction on the emotional exhaustion scale of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) and improved resilience on the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS).
