Creating A Compassionate Workplace - Thriving Not Surviving -  2 CPD Hours

In these volatile and uncertain times, fear and anxiety are on the rise and they are affecting how we live and work. The NHS is facing rising levels of mental health problems and work-related stress.

This webinar will show how we can create workplaces in which staff can thrive (not just survive) by focussing on compassion. Evidence shows that compassion has powerful psychological and physiological benefits for patients, staff, and the quality of patient care because it connects us as humans. Sharing learning from the award-winning staff support programme at Alder Hey, this webinar will outline what works (and what doesn’t work) in supporting staff during times of adversity.  

  • Explore the challenges care systems face in creating cultures of compassion.
  • Be able to describe the ‘Schwartz Rounds’ staff support programme developed at Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.
  • Understand the impact of Schwartz Rounds and their relevance to perioperative staff.
  • Understand the psychological and physiological benefits of compassion for staff and patients.
