A guide to support the well-being of healthcare personnel during a time of crisis

Source(s):  Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU)

The Uniformed Services University’s (USU) National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health (NCDMPH) collaborated with the Consortium for Health and Military Performance (CHAMP), the Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP), the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (CSTS), Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to provide medical personnel with resources aimed at improving their well-being during stressful situations or events. Within this compendium are hyper-linked articles from CHAMP on stress management, nutrition, physical activity and spiritual fitness.

  • CDP provides suggestions on the importance of maintaining a regular sleep pattern, the incorporation of a routine exercise schedule and recommendations regarding caffeine intake.
  • CSTS provides information on the mental health and behavioural impact when responding to outbreaks as well as approaches to providing emotional support to family members during unusual events.
  • WRNMMC Sleep Clinic provides recommended sleep aids and wake-promoting agents for healthcare workers during a time of crisis.
  • SAMHSA provides tips on managing stress while returning to the work environment.
