Delivering effective and compassionate care in the frequently overstretched maternity health service draws on professionals’ resilience and resourcefulness.
The day to day pressures of staff shortages, patient complications, and team dynamics, as well as dealing with serious incidences often have detrimental consequences on wellbeing, motivation and job satisfaction, which can result in staff leaving their jobs, sickness and burnout.
Being able to access their resilience and resourcefulness enables professionals to respond appropriately and wisely, to difficult circumstances or situations and maintain their wellbeing and efficiency.
This course offers an experiential understanding of how professionals’ state of mind and their connection with others fuels their resilience and wellbeing.
