This slide set covers the major issues facing our health care workforce during the Covid-19 pandemic. Nurses, doctors, and everyone else working in health care facilities is faced with some unique stresses from this disease. Vital to our societies and integral parts of our families, healthcare workers’ needs must be understood in all their complexity. We need to care for our health care workers.

The first downloadable file is a pdf of this slide set, the second downloadable file is a powerpoint presentation. Share widely– authors and affiliations are on the first page. References are found in the “notes” in the POWERPOINT verson.
