While some countries are reporting a gradual reduction in COVID-19 cases, in other countries, cases continue to increase. The profound effect of the pandemic on health care professionals' physical and mental well-being is indisputable. In this month's issue of JBI Evidence Synthesis, timely systematic reviews explore the topic of burnout among critical groups of health care workers. The first focuses on interventions to reduce burnout among emergency department staff, while the second examines the prevalence of burnout among nurses in sub-Saharan Africa. Finally, the third review in this issue presents the findings on patients' perspectives of interprofessional collaboration between health care professionals during hospitalization. The full table of contents is available here.

This month we are also pleased to present a JBI Best Practice Information Sheet to accompany the systematic review "Effectiveness of interventions to reduce emergency department staff occupational stress and/or burnout." This brief four-page summary of the published review features the important details including the findings and conclusions of the review, as well as the recommendations for practice. JBI Best Practice Information Sheets are available in the JBI Evidence Based Practice Database and are prepared for a selection of systematic reviews published in JBI Evidence Synthesis.
