Podcast Description: In this next podcast, Tricia Turner and Wendy Dean continue the conversation of clinician distress by addressing what support is needed to allow healthcare professionals to focus on patient care, particularly during a health crisis. Crucial support during a surge should be on healthcare professionals’ basic needs, so organizations should make meals and groceries accessible or provide transportation and childcare arrangements. More long-term, organizations need to provide psychological support programs that will benefit staff once they have a chance to process the situation. This support is critical so that healthcare professionals are mentally ready for a second surge and more importantly, they remain committed and engaged in their healthcare profession.
