We are pleased to welcome Associate Professor Natasha Smallwood and Professor Karen Willis back for another webinar after their very popular session at the People Summit Australia to share more findings and learnings from their Australian COVID-19 Frontline Health Workers Study.
Drawing from the qualitative experiences from the thousands of respondents to their study, this webinar aims to address the following key areas:
- The immense psychological impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on health workers, with high levels of anxiety, depression and burnout across the workforce, and some groups more at risk
- The occupational disruptions health workers experienced with the changed working hours, redeployment, altered work roles, new patient care practices and rapid adoption of digital technologies
- What are the protective factors against workers experiencing occupation-related mental health issues?
- What do healthcare workers need the most during a crisis from their employers?
It is a great opportunity to understand the impact of the pandemic on your staff as well as your peers, and to gain some insights on how you can protect and support them during crisis.
