ABSTRACT

Health Promotion to Enhance Healthcare Worker Performance During COVID-19   [open pdf - 248KB]

From the Document: "Healthcare workers and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel will likely experience exacerbated stressors during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] response. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers and people at the frontline of the response had already been experiencing burnout. Healthcare workers and EMS personnel are now working longer hours, spending time away from their families and loved ones, being asked to fill emergency positions for which they have limited training, and experiencing unusual physical and mental stressors (e.g., having confidence in reusing or extending use of personal protective equipment (PPE) traditionally used as disposable). These cumulative stressors increase risk factors for an array of behavioral health and mental well-being implications, such as burnout and secondary trauma."
