Managing stress, burnout and fatigue in health and social care
2.00pm to 4.00pm at National
2.00pm to 4.00pm
Health and social care workers were at high risk of work-related stress, burnout, and mental health problems prior to the pandemic and this was linked to existing recruitment and retention challenges in the sector. There is evidence that the situation has deteriorated considerably during 2020. This webinar considers the impact of COVID-19 on the health and social care workers and the wider implications for their patients/service users/ and their family. The organisational and occupationally specific hazards they are currently experiencing, such as short staffing and moral injury/distress, will also be considered. Multi-level interventions that have the potential to improve outcomes will be considered and examples of best practice identified.
