Contribution of Cold Versus Climate Change to Mortality in London, UK, 1976-2019
Conclusions. Anthropogenic climate change made some contribution to reducing previous cold-related deaths in London; however, cold remains an important public health risk factor. Public Health Implications. Better adaptation to both heat and cold should be promoted in public health measures to protect against climate change. In England, this has been addressed by the development of a new year-round Adverse Weather and Health Plan. (Am J Public Health.

Work Environment and Health Care Workforce Well-Being: Mental Health and Burnout in Medically Underserved Communities Prone to Disaster
Am J Public Health. 2024 Feb;114(S2):156-161. doi: 10.2105/AJPH.2023.307478.ABSTRACTHealth care workers (n = 71) completed an online survey or participated in one of five focus groups. Clinical cutoff scores revealed concerning levels of depression (16%), anxiety, and burnout (49%). Qualitative responses (n = 172) yielded two themes: work environment and well-being. Addressing burnout requires an ecological systems mindset, which accounts for complex stressors present in individual providers' lives (large-scale disasters and personal stressors), agency-level factors (scheduling and workload), and larger social and contextu...

Effectiveness of CBT-Informed Behavioral Health Interventions for Health Care Workers in a Specialized Clinical Service During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Conclusions. Our findings replicate those of existing research on the prevalence of psychiatric distress among HCWs, uniquely focusing on those seeking care. Our outcome data suggest that short-term CBT is effective in reducing clinical symptoms and increasing HCW well-being. Public Health Implications. Given the elevated rates of distress found in HCW surveys, evidence-based interventions such as ours are essential to ensure workforce well-being. Providing mental health care to HCWs has both individual benefits and potential implications for improved patient care and workforce retention. (Am J Public Health. 2024;114(S2):...
