Support for healthcare workers’ psychological wellbeing


Posted on 15 May 2020 (Permalink)

A new online package is available to support NHS staff and healthcare students with psychological wellbeing during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The package has been developed by Dr Holly Blake from the University of Nottingham, in collaboration with the University of Leicester. It contains information, advice and tips on:

  • Psychologically safe work environments
  • Communication
  • Social stigma
  • Accessing social support
  • Self-care strategies
  • Rest, shift work, fatigue and sleep
  • Managing emotions during the pandemic

It is designed to support as many people as possible during and after the pandemic. The package is therefore free to use, and open access.
