Healthcare workers are at increased risk for burnout due to the added stresses from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is imperative to support caretakers so that they are able to continue providing care to others. There are ways in which organizations and supervisors can support their healthcare worker staff during these particularly stressful times. 

Join this free, 60-minute webinar where we will discuss the new and existing wellness challenges for healthcare workers:

  • ways to build resilience and improve mental well-being among staff working on COVID-19 response

  • signs of stress manifesting at work in healthcare settings
