ANA Webinar – Preventing and Managing Secondary Stress in the Time of COVID-19

June 7, 2022 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

The live webinar is free, interactive, and reserved for ANA members only.

In the wake of the pandemic, close to half of nurses are reporting symptoms of depression.

Secondary stress is that extra level of stress specifically related to the demands of nursing care provided to patients and families in today’s health care system. Nurses are no strangers to the threat and reality of secondary stress as a condition of caring for others.   The current pandemic, however, has exacerbated and intensified this stress and the burnout that follows.

This webinar, presented by an internationally recognized expert, Gloria F. Donnelly, PhD, RN, FAAN, FCPP, provides insight and strategies for dealing with secondary stress, and its emotional and moral distress. Dealing effectively with secondary stress can be, literally, a matter of life or death.

Topics to be addressed in this important and timely program include:

  • Differences between normative job stress and secondary stress experienced by caregivers
  • Signs and behaviors of secondary stress
  • Effective strategies for self-care
  • Resilience building and post-traumatic growth in the face of secondary stress

Attend this important webinar to learn the strategies to successfully deal with secondary stress. You will leave enlightened, uplifted, and encouraged.

Who should attend: All nurses in all practice settings
