Pueblo, CO – A recent article published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine by CSU Pueblo professor, Brad Gilbreath, PhD, and Cynthia Mathieu, PhD, at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières has been chosen for inclusion in the Continuing Medical Education (CME) program. This prestigious recognition highlights the significance of their research and its potential to make a positive impact on healthcare practices.

The article, titled “Measuring Presenteeism from Work Stress: The Job-Stress-Related Presenteeism Scale,” reports on the factor structure and validity of the measurement tool created by Dr. Gilbreath and Dr. Erin Frew. The Job-Stress-Related-Presenteeism Scale is designed to measure job-stress-related-presenteesim, a phenomenon where employees are at work but are unable to fully focus on their work due to job stress. The scale can provide valuable insights into how workplace stress affects workers and their productivity. 

“We were happy to hear that our article was selected for this program,” Dr. Gilbreath said, “we hope that our research can have a positive impact beyond the academic community. Dr. Mathieu and I strongly believe in the need to make work healthier and more rewarding.”

The CME program is designed to help health professionals, including physicians and nurses, keep up with the latest research and apply evidence-based recommendations to their clinical practices. Selected journal articles are accompanied by a post-test, which assesses the readers’ understanding of the articles’ recommendations and their ability to implement them in clinical practice.

“CSU Pueblo faculty are among the best in Colorado and are recognized across the United States for their groundbreaking research, scholarship, and creative activity. Professor Gilbreath’s research makes an impact in the classroom and across industry, but more importantly, it is a timely and meaningful topic for any employer today,” said CSU Pueblo President, Timothy Mottet.

Professor Gilbreath was recently recognized for “Excellence in Teaching” by the CSU System Board of Governors at the February 2023 Board meeting in Pueblo.

This recognition by the CME program highlights the significance of Dr. Gilbreath and Dr. Mathieu’s research in the field of occupational health and safety. Their work has the potential to help health professionals and employers better understand how to create healthier and more productive workplaces.
