The wellbeing of healthcare workers is critical to patient safety.
While looking after the mental health and wellbeing of our healthcare workers has always been important, the events of 2020 have made this an immediate priority for our health sector.
Never has it been more important to care for your own mental health and wellbeing and for that of your employees, colleagues, family members or loved ones.
Healthcare worker wellbeing centre
As part of a $9.8 million healthcare worker wellbeing package, the Victorian Government set up a Healthcare worker wellbeing centre in early 2021.
Led by our Chief Clinical Officers, it is the first of its kind in Australia, and provides support for all who work in clinical and non-clinical roles in health services, community health and aged and primary care settings.
The centre will:
- provide direct links to organisations, tools and resources for healthcare workers to support their own mental health and wellbeing
- share tools, resources and training to help organisational leaders and managers to better support their staff
- look at ways to create system level changes and embed worker wellbeing as a priority across the broader health system.
