COVID-19 – Mental Health & Well-being of Healthcare Professionals – Knowledge Exchange Workshop with Scotland and South Denmark regions
Continuing our series of knowledge exchange webinars as part of SCIROCCO Exchange Knowledge Exchange Programme, in June, the topic under discussion was the support of psychological well-being of healthcare professionals during COVID-19 pandemics, highlighting the potential of digital solutions and importance of digital (technological) literacy in providing this support. Specifically, the webinar featured examples of:
- Assessing the psychosocial impact of COVID-19 on nurses and midwives at Odense Universal Hospital (South Denmark) including personal and work concerns of nurses/midwives during the COVID-19 outbreak and level of emotional distress experienced by nurses/midwives during the COVID-19 outbreak.
- PRoMis National Well-being Hub for those working in Health and Social Care in Scotland.
The outcomes of this webinar also helped to inform the knowledge of other regions and countries in providing the mental health and well-being support for healthcare professionals.
