The Society of Occupational Medicine (SOM) with Public Health England wish to support employers and employees to be COVID secure and maintain health and wellbeing during the pandemic and beyond. They also want policy makers to think about key challenges employers and employees are facing. To these ends, SOM is hosting a series of webinars on key issues, with follow up briefing sheets for employers, line managers and employees.

Sessions are designed to support employee wellbeing, productivity and avoid legal challenge.

Managing stress, burnout and fatigue in health and social care

This event is for employers of health and social care workers

Its aim is to inform policy and practice in the NHS, health and social care.

Health and social care workers were at high risk of work-related stress, burnout, and mental health problems prior to the pandemic and this was linked to existing recruitment and retention challenges in the sector. There is evidence that the situation deteriorated considerably during 2020.

This webinar considers the impact of COVID-19 on the health and social care workers and the wider implications for their patients/service users/ and their family. The organisational and occupationally specific hazards they are currently experiencing, such as short staffing and moral injury/distress, will also be considered. Multi-level interventions that have the potential to improve outcomes will be considered and examples of best practice identified.
