Taking Action, Moving Towards Change: Coping During a Pandemic

COVID-19 has challenged health system workers to change how we conduct ourselves in the workplace, our homes and our social connections. These changes can sometimes feel overwhelming.

To support health system workers, Shared Health and our Psychological Health & Safety Committee partners have brought together skilled trainers from across the province to facilitate a number of Staff Booster Sessions.

The Staff Booster Sessions are short, timely, and relevant presentations designed to fit into busy schedules. Between 15 and 20 minutes in length, topics will include stress management, self-care and dealing with uncertainty. Booster Sessions are available at specific times throughout the week to ensure staff from different agencies, even staff on overnight shifts, are able to attend. Booster Sessions will be recorded and later made available as a streaming video on demand.

New Staff Booster Sessions begin shortly – register now!

Session Description:

With some self-care opportunities not readily available to us, we may be leaning towards different ways of coping.  Substance use trends are on the rise.  Gaming systems sell out in minutes.  Television binge watching marathons are the new norm.  Door to door delivery people greet us by name.  This presentation will focus on healthy coping with an emphasis on allowing ourselves grace and patience as we live through a pandemic.

Leads (or delegates) review and share the printable memo with staff.
