The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of Canadian Critical Care Nurses providing direct patient care

Dear Canadian Critical Care Nurses,

I just wanted to share the summary of the results of my study examining the impact this pandemic has had on Critical Care Nurses’ mental health. Thank you to everyone who participated and shared their experiences. We are sharing these results with leadership groups to continue to raise the importance of mental wellness and support. The complete results will be published in the new year, we are still working on the manuscript, but felt it was vital to share these results. Thank you again for all you do everyday for our teams, our patients and their families. Please reach out to me at if you would like more information on the study.
