Creating cultures to promote resilience and wellbeing for social care and health professionals

10th March 2015

Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, London|CONF|SCCON-2015-1003-burmhs

If we don’t acknowledge and treat our health and social care workforce as ‘compassionate professionals’, how can they be expected to empower others through compassion?

The emotional impact on social care and health professionals is unprecedented in the current climate of rising referrals with highly complex and burdensome caseloads. Add to this the mismatch between public expectation and the ‘blame culture’ and these sectors are facing the ‘perfect storm’ in terms of the human fall-out. Community Care are pleased to announce a national event on Protecting the frontline against burnout

Conference themes include:

  • Understand how support can be constructively improved by changing team, management and organisational cultures
  • Receive practical tools to support the workforce to do ‘a difficult job better’
  • Understand why and how wellbeing and resilience should be at the heart of supporting caring and compassionate professionals

Speakers on the agenda include:

  • Dr Chris Manning, Mental Health Policy Lead, College of Medicine
  • Mike Bush, Member, Professional Capabilities Framework, The College of Social Work
  • Dr Clare Gerada MBE FRCP FRCGP MRCPsych, Medical Director, the Practitioner Health Programme
