Providing Additional Support for Clinicians During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Providers and essential workers at facilities nationwide are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic every day. In addition to unparalleled difficulties, such as the lack of testing supplies and PPE, you and your fellow hospital administrators/facility decision-makers face the challenge of maintaining urgently needed clinicians and supporting staff. Please know that you, your colleagues, and your employees are in our hearts and thoughts. We are grateful for the lifesaving services you provide and everything you do to ensure patients receive quality, compassionate care.
This week (April 6 – 12) marks the 25th anniversary of National Public Health Week, formed to bring communities across the United States together to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues to improve on it. Acknowledging its importance is significant at this time more than ever. Correspondingly, it is vital for leaders of health systems and healthcare organizations to provide those who care for the patients in their communities – physicians, advanced practitioners, and all healthcare workers – with additional resources for their health and well-being during these times of stress and crisis.
While your facility undoubtedly has an infrastructure in place to support your people throughout this extraordinary time, we are sharing links to excellent information from esteemed sources – namely, the American Medical Association (AMA) and the National Academy of Medicine – that we hope you will find helpful:
- Caring for Our Caregivers During COVID-19
- Managing Mental Health During COVID-19
- Resources to Support the Health and Well-Being of Clinicians During the COVID-19 Outbreak
