The Effect of Resilience-based Interventions on Health Outcomes:
An Integrative Literature Review

Clinical Problem Abstract

     The literature is replete with discussion about resiliency and the need for resilient-based interventions to address the lack of coping strategies inherent in and through today’s society. The literature lacks an assortment of gender designed and culturally sensitive resilient-based interventions that show positive health outcomes.

     The purpose of this paper is to explore what is currently known about resilience-based interventions that positively affect health outcomes and clinical implications related to that knowledge. The approach to developing resilience-based interventions must also be gender and culturally sensitive, and involve family support along with community networks in order to prevent, intervene, and sustain positive health outcomes for the client population that the family nurse practioner serves.
