When the rest of us are asleep or celebrating holidays with our loved ones, healthcare professionals across the country are leaving their families to go and care for ours.
But when you add the dynamics and challenges of a global pandemic like the coronavirus to your career, which is already stressful, learning how to cope now needs to be significantly more comprehensive.
Dr. Thompson defines “moral stress” when healthcare professionals care for “terminally ill or traumatically injured patients or in situations where lack of facilities, time, supplies, expertise, or other resources constrain their ability to provide needed care.”
There are many stressors in our lives, such as work, family, money, and health. While we can’t avoid all stressors, we can learn how to manage them effectively.
Reduce stress and increase the retention of your experienced, top-notch healthcare team throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
