Occupational & Intellectual Wellbeing

We know health and wellbeing conversations are happening everyday between colleagues in many different ways and formats. That might be through formal 1:1s, appraisal, clinical supervision or through informal conversations. It is important that this continues. We have put together a Wellbeing Action Plan document to support your conversations.

Quality Conversations Training

Would you like to know how to have conversations that lead to real change? Essential Foundations in Quality Conversations training may be just for you!

The Quality Conversations programme aims to support frontline staff to get the most from the time spent with patients, clients, service users and their families and carers by providing a set of tools and resources for use in day-to-day practice.

The programme focuses on interactions with patients, clients, service users, families and carers but the principles are relevant to all our conversations such as colleagues, and family and friends. 

Undertaking the training will help you with your reflective thinking and will support revalidation and appraisal.

Joined Up Care Derbyshire is supporting this exciting programme which is FREE and available to ALL STAFF ACROSS DERBYSHIRE in acute care, primary care, community services, social care and voluntary services.

Stress Workshop and Stress HIIT Sessions

Stress is something that we all encounter at different times in our lives. Whilst some stress is absolutely necessary and hard to prevent, there are things we can do to help ourselves manage the impact of stress differently. We welcome you to come along to either a Stress Workshop or a Stress HIIT Session (both delivered virtually) to find out more. If you feel you would like some immediate hints and tips on managing stress, please see the attached infographic.

Stress Workshop

This session takes you on a deep dive into what stress is, the impact it has on us and the things we can do to prevent and relieve it. You will leave with an understanding of your own triggers and symptoms for stress and some new ways of thinking. This session is ideal for leaders and managers, but all are welcome.
