Monday, May 18, 2020 | 2:00pm EST
The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for healthcare workers and first responders. As this pandemic enters its third month, our employees and those leading EMS agencies are hitting a critical level of physical and emotional fatigue. While many parts of the country are starting the process of “opening back up”, we still have a very long way to go before we return to any semblance of how things looked prior to this Coronavirus outbreak.
Join AAA HR & Operations Consultant, Scott Moore and licensed Psychologist, Dr. Lau Morrison for this important webinar program. Dr. Morrison is a former EMT who currently works for the Los Angeles County, Department of Mental Health working with children who are considered high risk for severe mental health issues. In her private practice, Dr. Morrison works with EMTs and Paramedics who are struggling with PTSD and other mental health and wellness issues. Dr. Morrison and Scott will be discussing many of the challenges that faced EMS personnel in the early days of the COVID-19 response and the challenges that lie ahead in the coming months. This program will provide attendees with strategies that EMS professionals and leaders can employ to provide the greatest support to all who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
