What is stress? Research asserts that stress is the mental state that results from an inability to cope (Burton 2004)
Why focus on stress?
- Persistent stress can lead to serious psychological problems such as interpersonal difficulties, depression, anxiety, and even suicide (Shapiro 2000)
- Several studies have found up to a third of medical students experience stress-related problems
The importance of this study comes from: A review of the extent literature suggests there is no systematic inquiry of the effects of stress experienced by students in LBL and PBL curricula in PA education
