Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented work environment for pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists. How we practice medicine has been dramatically changed. When discussing physical precautions such as PPE and social distancing, provider mental well-being also should be a part of the conversation.

In this podcast, Jennifer Bickel, MD, pediatric neurologist and Medical Director of the Children’s Mercy Center for Professional Well-Being, discusses how pediatricians have responded to the pandemic on a personal and professional level, the impact on physical and mental health, adjusting to the decrease in patient and peer contact, warning signs of burnout and mental health issues, steps Children’s Mercy is taking to address physician well-being, and more.
