With the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, physicians and other clinicians are suddenly having to process vast amounts of new information on how to manage patient care as well as safely protect themselves. In the midst of the pandemic, attending to their own mental health and well-being is vital--but wading through yet an additional set of resources may seem overwhelming.
In this 30-minute podcast, we interview Stuart Slavin, MD, ACGME’s Senior Scholar for Well-being, who provides a synthesis and distillation of well-being strategies for residents and other clinicians specific to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr Slavin has pulled from resources including psychology and psychiatry, peer support programming, the military and VA system, and literature for support of first responders to mass casualty events.
