The Exchange: COVID-19 and Healthcare Professional Stress and Resilience [Issue 12]   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Foreword: "The phenomenal effort that you and other healthcare emergency readiness and response professionals have made while caring for this nation's communities during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has not gone unnoticed and ASPR [Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response] recognizes the immense sacrifices you and your peers continue to make. We also understand that responding to this long-term incident may affect your mental health, morale, and resilience. In this issue ASPR TRACIE [Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange] strives to collect and share the most valuable, timely, and helpful information for you and your colleagues and offer the following resources to address healthcare worker mental health and resilience: [1] The COVID-19 Behavioral Health Resource Collection includes a section on Self-Care and Resilience Resources for Responders and Healthcare Workers. [2] The Behavioral Health Compendium can help Regional Emergency Coordinators and federal and state planners better understand how programs with behavioral health components (e.g., steady state programs, grants, certain HHS [Health and Human Services] programs, waivers and flexibilities) can support the pandemic response. [3] ASPR TRACIE Mini Modules to Relieve Stress for Healthcare Workers Responding to COVID-19 are designed for healthcare workers in all settings, but primarily hospital-based providers, staff, and leaders dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic."
