During times of crisis, feelings of fear, anxiety, anger and helplessness can easily become overwhelming. Amid the current pandemic, health care professionals, physicians and leaders are uniquely impacted by unimaginable stress. Reconciling one's professional commitment and imposed requirements against personal thoughts and emotions can magnify a sense of moral injury and create added stressors. As members of the health care community, how should we be dealing with these feelings? Does it even matter? What are some practical tools we can use to aid in coping? We'll dive into practical tips for physically and mentally navigating this uncharted territory.
