Practical self care for health professionals during the COVID-19 Crisis
At the Center of Excellence for Integrated Care, the work we do allows us to collaborate and assist some of the most amazing healthcare professionals. Our appreciation for the work of these providers, clinicians, staff, and administrators grew exponentially with the onset of COVID-19 and the added responsibility and stress. Our team at COE has experience providing direct services to patients as clinicians and we know how important it is to take care of yourself. Now more than ever we are encouraging providers, clinicians, and all healthcare staff to pay attention to what they need to be able to take care of themselves.
While it may seem like extra work we know that it is critical for healthcare providers and staff to put gas in the tank so that they can stay well themselves, continue to help others, and be there for those they love. The document below is a resource and reminder to healthcare providers and staff of a variety of tools they can use to help take care of themselves. As a starting point, consider choosing one tool that sounds the most reasonable and add more strategies as you like. Thank you again for all that you do for so many.
