AbstractThe coronavirus disease pandemic has been an exceptional time for healthcare workers who have had to adapt to new ways of communicating with each other and delivering care to their patients. Maintaining healthcare workers’ well-being and mental health during increased COVID-19 workload pressure and change in practices is needed. It is essential to have a resilient workforce that can respond to the challenges presented by the pandemic. Healthcare workers at the frontline may be more susceptible to psychological stressors such as the availability of resources to protect themselves and their patients whilst balancing this with maintaining the health and well-being of family and friends. This research topic addresses the problems and issues researchers, policymakers, and educators face when formulating the best evidence and recommendations to support healthcare workers. There is a need to collate the best available practice and share knowledge from diverse contexts so healthcare workers can deliver the best care whilst they stay physically and mentally healthy.
