Telehealth-enabled resiliency and mental health support for health care workers (HCWs)

Overview Resources

Project Overview

MUSC established the Resiliency Program to foster resilience and address the behavioral health needs of health care workers (HCWs) using evidence-based approaches adapted from work with disaster and trauma-affected populations. The COE will expand the reach and impact of MUSC's Resiliency Program by building technology-based resources to expand HCW mental health screening and triage and direct telehealth mental health support. After its initial pilot, this program will be extended to rural hospitals owned by and/or affiliated with MUSC. We will conduct a multi-modal qualitative and quantitative evaluation to measure the satisfaction and feasibility of the intervention and use validated survey instruments to assess HCW mental health at different points in time (PTSD, depression, substance use/misuse, sleep, burn-out and resiliency).
