During pandemics, health care leaders have multiple responsibilities. They must quickly assess and provide direction for clinical care, ensure system- and individual-level interventions are in place, and effectively communicate with caregivers and those in their communities who have questions, need reassurance, or simply want to know they’re not alone in their feelings of grief.

On this Virtual Learning Hour, created in partnership with Well Being Trust, expert panelists discuss what they continue to learn about specific leadership behaviors and system supports needed to address the mental health and well-being needs of caregivers.

Listeners also have the opportunity to share their questions, struggles, and bright spots they are seeing in this unprecedented time.
