Bite-Sized Resilience During Times of Uncertainty

Stressed during uncertain times? If you, your staff or your colleagues are feeling particularly spent, it is probably because the level of emotional exhaustion in healthcare workers was already at an all-time-high before COVID-19, with one out of three people already meeting the criteria for burnout. In this enlightening and entertaining module, we will provide some perspective, hope and simple strategies to try during tense times.
