COVID-19 is a pandemic infectious disease and has created immense distress on the Canadian society. In health care, the number of patients will continue to increase and push the health care system to its limit. Nurses are at the centre of the fight against COVID-19, and are facing unprecedented challenges and stress: increased work load, difficult clinical circumstances, and higher risk of infection.
To support nurses who work in Ontario, this support group will provide a platform for nurses to discuss fear, normalize stress reactions, share solidarity, and provide recommendations on effective coping strategies to build resilience and enhance coping.
Each group session will accept registration until the group start time or when the group is full. If there is need, more group sessions will become available.
