COVID-19 PANDEMIC RESOURCES

Image result for covid-19     I've produced a short list of resources to support mental well-being during these distressing times. I'm posting that list below. Additionally that list is available here on google drive. You are welcome to share the link with your students, fellow health professional educators, your students, your deans, your loved ones and your global communities.
     You all know we are experiencing an unprecedented pandemic—at least during our lifetimes. As such, we must all take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of everyone involved in health professional education. That includes students, faculty, staff, patients, standardized patient actors, and the general public. At the same time, we must work to prevent the spread of misinformation, panic, or paranoid fears. We’re confident that the leadership in each of your programs is striking the right balance for everyone’s safety and need to proceed within your local contexts. But since one of Osmosis’s core values is to “Have Each Other’s Backs,” below is a list of resources we recommend to maximize everyone’s psychological health during these distressing times.
