Are you all right? Understanding your well-being in a COVID-19 world

*A recording of a webinar that took place on Thursday 25 June 2020*

Stress and mental well-being are both very important issues in dentistry, particularly in the current climate. This webinar will address both these topics, helping you recognise the signs of stress and learn how to prevent it. It will also teach you how to provide support to others in this situation.

Learning objectives

  • Understand aetiology, signs and symptoms of stress and burnout
  • Explore the prevalence of stress in dentistry and what we know about COVID-19 and well-being
  • Gain knowledge of psychological effects on healthcare staff when experiencing a pandemic
  • Be aware of evidence-based prevention and coping strategies during a pandemic
  • Be aware of signposting for people experiencing stress and burnout and gain knowledge of the organisations available for support.
