Clinical Management Through COVID-19

Thursday, August 13, 1:00 PM, EDT: Mental Health in Healthcare Professionals on the Front-Line of the COVID Pandemic

There is tremendous stress on healthcare professionals working in hospitals and long-term care settings. The work environment has become a battlefield against COVID-19. People are dying, sometimes daily. Workers are called upon to work longer hours in uncomfortable PPE, while risking their own lives and those of their families. The mental health consequences are already evident - higher rates of anxiety, insomnia, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This webinar will address the mental health effects of the pandemic on healthcare workers and offer pragmatic solutions for how to better cope and manage these serious problems.
