Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard from nurses and leaders of national nurses organizations about the critical challenges nurses and other health workers on the frontlines of COVID-19 are facing, such as a dwindling inventory of personal protective equipment (PPE), a need for proper PPE training, concerns over nurse burnout and uncertainty about the nature of this virus. They’ve also expressed the need for credible, easy-to-access resources that can help equip nurses to overcome these challenges.
While many nurse and health organizations around the world have mobilized their resources and experts to create toolkits and guidance that can help inform, protect and support the integral health workers on the frontlines of COVID-19, I’m sure that many of you haven’t had the time to search them out.
While not an exhaustive list, I thought I would share a few of them with you today that I have come across, which include where to find real-time updates, best practices and guidance, mental health and resilience resources and free online training modules. I hope the wide range of information they have to offer is helpful for you and your teams.
Best Practices and Guidance
Mental Health and Resilience
Supporting the Nursing Community
Free Online Training
I hope that this list is helpful for you and nurses in your network. I will continue to keep an eye out for resources and update this list with new information as it becomes available!
On behalf of Johnson & Johnson, thank you to all nurses and frontline health workers around the world who are working in this health crisis. Please know that we will never stop listening to your needs and supporting you, just as we have done for over 120 years.
