With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting so many around the world, mandatory quarantines are taking place for those who test positive for the coronavirus. Nurses are working with a new enemy, many hours a day, with fear of getting sick themselves, infecting their patients while struggling with providing the best care possible for their patients. Compassion fatigue accompanied by physical fatigue is overwhelming and can very well lead to depression and/or other mental health concerns. This program will give you the knowledge and skills needed to recognize depression in yourself, colleagues, loved ones and/or patients and the strategies to manage it.
