Taking Care: Essential skills for looking after yourself, your team and your patients
A practical and hands-on Taking Care training course is being offered to staff working in three older people’s mental health services wards: Ward 2 at Angelton Clinic, Celyn Ward at Ysbryd y Coed, and Suite 2 at Tonna Hospital, focused on supporting staff in a variety of ways including their own wellbeing.
Do you ever feel that you are working so hard that you haven't got anything left to give?
Are there moments when you wish that some of your colleagues could see things from your perspective or that the system you work in was more supportive?
Would you like to find ways to feel less stressed by ongoing insecurity and change?
Drawing on the innovative Circle of Care framework, this one day course explores positive ways to revitalise life at work, improve channels of communication, build resilience and begin to create a more supportive working environment. All members of the clinical care team (including nurses and health care support workers, allied health professionals, doctors, hospitality and administrative staff) are invited to investigate practical ways to look after yourself and each other in order to improve patient safety and experience and to feel more connected to your motivations for working in healthcare.
The simulated scenarios used in the training have been developed based on interviews with teams working on these wards in AMBU. This training does not involve roleplay.
