How do you provide the best possible support for the wellbeing of staff in the midst of a crisis?
The response to COVID-19 put unprecedented pressures on staff working in health and care settings. Long hours wearing uncomfortable protective equipment, managing patients suffering from a novel disease, with rapidly changing treatment protocols and often devastating outcomes. In the second of our Doing Things Differently series, we will learn what a variety of hospitals did to develop their training and support packages for staff during this time. In our learning, we will explore what practical tools and measures other organisations can adopt in their own setting to support the wellbeing of their staff.

About the series
Doing Things Differently is a series of virtual sessions hosted by UCLPartners looking at how the experience of managing the COVID-19 pandemic can be used to deliver care differently in future. The emerging nature of the crisis required teams and organisations to adopt an agile approach and change the way they worked, which has resulted in episodes of excellence that we can all learn from.
Each session will have a different topic focus and/or setting, but the lessons will have broad interest and applicability.
