In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the goal of giving back to the healthcare community, Dignity Health Global Education (DHGE) has partnered with the University of Exeter to develop an app-based micro-course for frontline healthcare workers. Entitled Strength to Endure, the course was created in collaboration with the United Kingdom’s (UK) University of Exeter, one of the world’s top universities for the study of sports performance psychology.

The app-based micro-course from @dhgeonline & the University of Exeter will help frontline #healthcare workers improve their well-being & navigate the new normal of daily life during #Covid19, with profits donated to local #nursing foundations
The one-hour micro-course gives insights into strengthening resilience, improving overall well-being, and navigating the unprecedented new normal healthcare workers now face on a daily basis. To care for those who care for others, the course is just $10. All profits will be donated to local nursing foundations. For more information and to, visit www.dhge.org/strength.
The science and research behind the course are based on the same strategies used by elite athletes to endure high-pressure moments during intense competition. The course teaches healthcare workers how to optimize their mental and physical energy by maintaining well-being through nutrition and rest, preparing for adversity, and applying mental skills in the moment. Strength to Endure is broken up into short segments to enable busy healthcare workers to review information a few minutes at a time.
“DHGE’s mission is simple,” says Andrew Malley, CEO for DHGE. “By utilizing world-class online education, we want to enhance careers, improve workforces and efficiencies, and ultimately help those working in the health space provide the highest possible quality of care. We believe this program will give frontline workers tools to do the incredible work they are doing by strengthening their mindset using the same input given to elite athletes and those in other high-pressure disciplines.”
