Abstract

In this COVID-19 pandemic scenario, healthcare practitioners are strongly suffering from mental health diseases and ill- being while engaging in the treatment and care of patients with COVID-19. Among the different symptoms described in latest studies, the ones expressed more frequently by frontline healthcare workers are depression, anxiety, fear, trauma, and sense of incapacity. This descriptive cross-sectional study has the main objective of collecting information on the different perspectives regarding how hospital administrators are supporting the mental health and well-being of their medical professionals and if their strategies to support well-being are efficient in helping practitioner’s mental health during COVID-19 scenario. We are using two main types of methods in order to collect data: Online Surveys and online interviews. Data is still being collected; however, we hypothesize that findings can help us evaluate the negative and positive dimensions of hospital managerial practices, identify possible improvements to support healthcare professional’s well-being, and identify communication gaps on perspectives between the managerial sector of hospitals and frontline healthcare practitioners regarding employee’s mental health support during COVID-19 scenario.
