Archived Webinar: COVID-19 – Where We are and the Path Ahead for Staff and Patients

COVID-19 and the Delta Variant have caused significant stress, trauma, death, and grief globally at a level not seen in 100 years. No populations have been spared, but health care and humanitarian workers have been impacted disproportionately. While caring for patients/clients, health care workers have often been at risk of catching COVID-19, and risked bringing COVID-19 home to their families and loved ones. This webinar delved deeply into the risks of COVID-19 and examined issues related to planning safe re-entry for staff and patients. There will be a informative presentation by Dr. Rajeev Bais, an expert in infectious disease, followed and panel discussion, including Drs. Dinali Fernando and Richard Mollica, and finally, a question and answer session with the webinar attendees.


After attending this webinar participants will:

  • Learn how the Delta Variant has affected survivors of torture (SOT) clinics and projects and thus, be able to plan for more in-person encounters with patients/clients in a safe manner.
  • Gain a fuller understanding as to how the dynamics of the health care worker – patient/client relationship sifted due to the lack of face-to-face encounters and how to best address this issue.
  • Identify the importance of the principles of self-care.
