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:  The COVID-19 Behavioral Health Resource Collection includes a section on Self-Care and Resilience Resources for Responders and Healthcare Workers.  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.  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."
