This pre-recorded panel discussion, hosted in partnership with the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN), is designed to help viewers understand how different rehab organizations and states have been supporting the mental health and well-being of their staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the
second installment of this two-part pre-recorded webinar series, a panel discussion will be led by Laurie Ferguson, PhD, an expert in social services and patient mental health, along with Steven Powell, MSN, RN-BC, CRRN, and Tonisha Melvin, DNP, APRN,CRRN, ANP-C. Both panel members have a unique perspective on COVID-19 due to geographic location, the size of their organization, as well as personal experiences with both patients and caregivers in the rehab setting. This open discussion will share information on how to help assess, manage, and address the mental and psychosocial well-being of those working on the frontlines. The panel will also discuss common sources of mental health stress, the positive effects of personal support and organizational interventions, and identify the employee populations most affected by COVID-19 related mental health distress.
