As the health crisis driven by COVID-19 continues, many health care workers are having to cope with an increase or exacerbation of anxiety, burnout or other challenges related to increasingly difficult work conditions. We’re encouraging physicians to check in on their own health and the CMA has created a Pandemic Wellness Toolkit to help them get started. The toolkit has evidence-based wellness supports, including:
- A wellness self-assessment tool
- Access to peer support and counseling services
- Resources to connect with peers, support your team and overcome challenges related to the pandemic
Also, completing activities and accessing resources in the toolkit can count towards continuing professional development credits with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (Maintenance of Certification), the College of Family Physicians of Canada (Mainpro+) or the Collège des médecins du Québec (CMQ).
