Speaker: Albert W. Wu, MD, MPH – Professor of Health Policy & Management and Medicine,
Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health

Watch the Webinar:

  • Leading Your Institution, Your Colleagues, & Yourself Through Stressful Times Webinar.
  • In this webinar, Dr. Albert Wu of Johns Hopkins Medicine describes the harmful impact of COVID-19 on the psychological well-being of healthcare workers, including short-term feelings of fear, anxiety and frustration to long-term risks of burnout and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). These stresses on our healthcare providers can lead to detrimental patient care, emphasizing the important need for institutions to provide an integrated continuum of staff support programs. Dr. Wu goes on to stress what individuals should do during this health crisis to promote good mental health, including taking care of basic needs and reaching out to colleagues to stay connected.
