The Importance of Self-Care for the Caring Professions
As a member of the health and care professions, you have given so much since the start of the pandemic to care for those in need and fight in the frontline to keep our community safe from COVID-19. You and your staff have been put under a tremendous amount of pressure and faced with unprecedented challenges.
Eighteen months on we are still confronting COVID-19. The importance of self-care becomes even more vital as many health and care workers have reported rising anxiety, depression, PTSD and burnout and are considering leaving the caring professions.
In this webinar, the Hon. Jeff Kennett AC talks to us about the importance for health and care workers for putting themselves first and caring for themselves in order to keep caring for those in need.
