Caring for care staff during Covid 19
We have all relied on our care staff throughout the pandemic. We asked staff to put themselves (and often their families) on the line for us. As the pandemic starts to recede, we need to look out for them and support them through this further phase.
These Intensive Care Society posters offer invaluable advice for clinicians, support staff and managers on pacing yourself and your teams, the importance of meeting basic needs, staying well psychologically, and avoiding burnout. They were important at the beginning of the pandemic. They are just as important now, as the long term toll on people starts to tell.
Covid 19 is going to be with us as an endemic disease for a long time to come. Whatever part of the health service you work in, whether you are a leader or manager, care provider or support staff, these posters are relevant to you. You can download them from the ICS site here.
