& Employee Wellness 

In the face of the unparalleled challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic and the global public health emergency, the Missouri Primary Care Association recognizes the importance of offering support and strategies to help health centers combat burnout and moral injury.  Even before COVID-19, many healthcare workers already faced burnout. Now this crisis is presenting the state’s workforce with even greater hardships and moral dilemmas that are very likely to intensify. 


No one is exempt from burnout or the signs of it such as stress, exhaustion, sleep deprivation, depression, etc.  We all need help to navigate these difficult challenges of the current moment and the long-term effects of COVID-19.  The following resources offer more information on how to support personal health and well-being.
