Systems Perspectives on Healthcare Worker Burnout and Wellbeing During the COVID-19 Pandemi

US healthcare workers are at high risk for depression, substance abuse, suicide, and burnout. New stressors imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated these occupational health risks at a time when baseline levels of burnout and poor mental health were already high, presenting an occupational health crisis. This webinar will showcase preliminary findings from two ongoing studies investigating occupational stress and well-being among healthcare workers during the pandemic.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:
  • Describe systems factors shaping workplace conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic and clinicians’ perceptions of burnout and work-related wellbeing.
  • Identify systems characteristics that protect clinicians’ health and work-related well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Explain how to apply the systems engineering analysis approach to study factors affecting clinicians’ perception of burnout and work-related well-being.
  • Identify suggestions for policy or practice systems changes for improving clinicians’ health and work-related well-being during and beyond pandemic conditions.
