RCSEd Wellbeing Week
During challenging times for us all, the RCSEd Trainees' Committee is encouraging surgical and dental teams to take a few moments to focus on each other. Maintaining wellbeing is vital to enable the provision of optimal patient care. Wellbeing Week, held 1-5 March 2021 was a reminder to check in with everyone, offer support and celebrate achievements.
The week's activities took place online and included:
- Daily webinars and wellbeing activity sessions
- Peer Coaching Skills Training Workshop
- Virtual art and poetry competition
- Social media takeover including wellbeing tips
Find out more by re-watching our preview webinar, recorded on 25 January 2021.
The event also focused on fundraising for Mind UK. Mind is a mental health charity that offers information and advice to people with mental health problems and lobbies government and local authorities on their behalf.
Art and Poetry Competitions
Theme: Wellbeing in Healthcare
Acknowledging and supporting the well-being of our healthcare workforce is essential for the workers themselves, but it can also affect patients by improving safety and positive outcomes.
Create an original piece of Poetry or Art based on your interpretation of the theme. Submissions will be marked on: relevance to theme, originality, creativity, quality and impact.
