SE HealthcareNEXT Event (virtual)
United States of America
Caring for Those Who are Caring for Others
The COVID-19 pandemic brought many wellness concerns, including mental wellbeing, center stage. The pressures of being on the front lines, physical distancing, and dealing with multiple case surges created or exacerbated mental wellbeing conditions among healthcare workers. Leaders moved swiftly to build upon programs already in place to fully support employees.
Join Inforum at a virtual event to learn from healthcare industry leaders on addressing mental wellbeing among employees pre-pandemic, during the pandemic, and post-pandemic.
