Abstract: Purpose of Review Stress, burnout, and sleep disorders significantly impact health professionals during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. This study reviews the scoping strategies to inform human resource management and administration. These approaches can help health professionals overcome challenges associated with sleep disorders during and after the pandemic. Recent Findings The review of existing literature discovered a reciprocal relationship between stress, burnout, and sleep disorders during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, which is associated with an interplay of physiological and psychological factors among health professionals. Effective coping strategies for sleep disorders involve both personal and organizational efforts to address and mitigate these issues. Summary Female health professionals have been identified as more vulnerable to sleep disorders, stress, and burnout, primarily due to hormonal influences. However, there is an increasing concern for male counterparts as well. Effective coping strategies for health professionals include enhancing emotional resilience, fostering altruism through reflective counseling, employing sleep medications, and establishing organizational justice.
