- The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education mandated measurement of perceived stress in Student Pharmacists as related to its impact on professional and academic performance.
- In 2015, Burgess et al. found a significant effect of power posing (P < 0.01) as a physiological indicator of mental empowerment; testosterone decreased after female students conducted low power poses and increased following the high power poses.
- This study expanded upon the potential of using physical poses to impact mental status, by introducing Student Pharmacists to power posing and relaxation techniques to reduce levels of stress and anxiety over the course of a semester.
