We have revised our successful “Developing Resilience” programmes, updating materials and activities to provide participants and their managers with a helpful approach to focus on wellbeing. Our Emotional Wellbeing at Work Programme uses contemporary literature and accessible approaches to support staff wellbeing, moving from the use of the terminology of resilience. In the last decade there has been continued acknowledgement that we need to focus on the wellbeing of those who provide care, to support their capacity for the delivery of high-quality care.
Three main issues have driven this:
- Recruitment and retention of staff
- High sickness levels
- High profile instances where compassionate care has been absent
