About the Webinar
Around the world, physicians and other health care clinicians are facing unprecedented challenges as they deal with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). While learning how to address these obstacles and overcome barriers to ensure high quality health care for patients, obstetrician–gynecologists may find that the increased stress experienced during the pandemic could contribute to poor mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) wants to ensure that our Members have access to the tools needed to maintain wellness for their colleagues and themselves as they continue working through the COVID-19 pandemic. After participating in this webinar, attendees should be able to:
- Identify the specific challenges that ob-gyns are facing in the wake of COVID-19 that could contribute to poor physician wellness.
- Access the resources available to physicians so they may continue monitoring and maintaining best wellness practices as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold.
- Establish best practices that will help maintain wellness for yourself and for your colleagues, including ways to introduce those best practices within the broader hospital environment.
