ProQOL Health was developed to serve healthcare workers improve their self-care and over all well-being by explaining key concepts.
As a health worker working in difficult humanitarian or pandemic situations, you have direct contact with the lives of your patients and beneficiaries. As you may have found, your compassion for those you help can affect you in positive and negative ways.
The ProQOL Health manual was developed to serve as a resource summarizing key concepts related to healthcare workers’ self-care and the possible impacts of their work on their well-being. The manual also provides guidance to healthcare workers on the use of the ProQOL Health measure as a means of monitoring their well-being.
Craig Higson-Smith, Ph.D. provides an introduction to the Professional Quality of Life measure for health workers.
