Organisational kindness during covid-19 The BMJ Podcast

    • Science

Reports from Italy, and more recently from the U.S. show the strain the healthcare system is under during this pandemic.

We know that staff will step up in an emergency, but this isn’t a fire or a bombing, this is going to last for months. So how can organisations be proactive in supporting staff, and how can leaders try to mitigate the inevitable burnout.

In this podcast, Michael West, professor of organisational psychology at Lancaster university, and author of the GMC report “Caring for doctors, caring for patients” joins us to talk about what compassionate leadership looks like in a time of covid-19.
