2) Kings Fund Poster - to Support Health & Wellbeing of workers. Staff may experience a wide range of normal feelings and anxieties during the early stages of dealing with Covid-19. The aim of planned responses to active ongoing stress is to foster resilience, reduce burnout and reduce the risk of post-traumatic stress disorder. Designed for hospital workers but very relevant for the care sector.
