Open Forum Events invite you to the third Mental Health: Supporting NHS Workforce Resilience conference which will appraise the psychological wellbeing of NHS staff and provide a platform to discuss potential solutions to improve the current situation.
Healthcare staff are known to have poorer mental health than those in other sectors and are reporting increased symptoms of anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Sickness levels are at a record high with mental health issues being the biggest cause of absenteeism. In 2022 six million working days were lost in total to mental health and wellbeing reasons.
Improving the wellbeing of those caring for patients must be a priority for all healthcare organisations and this conference will offer delegates the opportunity to learn how this can be achieved.
The agenda features informative presentations, delivered by an expert speakers, case studies and an opportunity to share best practice which is applicable across the NHS. Interactive panels and casual networking will encourage attendees to immerse themselves in conversations to confront the challenges and determine improvement strategies.
Book your place today at the CPD accredited Mental Health: Supporting NHS Workforce Resilience conference as places are limited.
This conference is designed to induce change with knowledge, innovation, and inspiration.
Any transformation of a process or service requires the input of products and services devised to make improvements such as digital technologies; training provision; workforce planning; outsourced services; data and analytics etc.
If your organisation supports change through your products and services, our delegates and conference participants will be ready to engage with you.
Most of the time we look at personal resilience as recovering from adversity. Yet, what if we explore it from a different angle? Adam will share his research findings into the personal resilience of NHS executive leaders and what we might learn from these arguably successful people, to give us a different perspective on personal resilience.
This talk will provide data from the NHS CHECK study run by King’s College London, alongside other published information, to highlight the mental health of healthcare staff. Topics discussed will include moral injury as well as practical mechanisms to improve the psychological wellbeing of NHS staff.
This session will draw out some key insights around sickness absence in the NHS. How do levels compare to prior to the pandemic? Does this differ across the NHS? What is the link between staff health and retention? The presentation will cover these and other issues.
Allocated planned time for speakers to receive questions from the audience and induce further discussion.
The suicide rate among health workers is 24% higher than in the general population, and people who are exposed to or bereaved by suicide are at a heightened risk of occupational dropout and of dying by suicide. This is why postvention – the support of people affected by a suicide – is so important. Our research started with the ambition to create the first evidence-based postvention guidance to support NHS staff after the suicide of a colleague. Our aim has been to understand the impact on, and support needs of, NHS staff following a colleague’s death by suicide. In this presentation I will share our processes of engaging with NHS staff to generate data and understanding; our process of translating that learning into fit-for-purpose, evidence-based guidance; and I will give an overview of the published postvention guidance.
Inclusivity and diversity is so important. This presentation will look at how BDCFT think differently about neurodiversity to allow staff reach their full potential.
A hot, two-course lunch consisting of multiple options will be provided for delegates. We cater for all dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten/dairy-free; just notify us ahead of time should you have any allergens or requirements.
The mental health of healthcare professionals has become a pressing concern, exacerbated by the challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic and ongoing staffing shortages within the National Health Service (NHS). A variety of factors have contributed to a significant rise in the demand for mental health support among healthcare staff, disproportionately affecting those with pre-existing mental health conditions. In response to this growing need, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust has implemented a specialized service focused on rapid access to mental health assessments for NHS staff of all roles.
The Staff Mental Health Service (SMHS) offers comprehensive multidisciplinary mental health support, specifically tailored to individuals dealing with enduring and persistent conditions. The dedicated team comprises consultant psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, mental health nurses, an occupational health nurse, and efficient administrative personnel. This holistic approach to assessment and treatment has yielded substantial improvements in symptoms of depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), facilitating the return to work for many and enhancing their job performance.
Furthermore, the service incorporated a research component to gauge its effectiveness and cost-efficiency. External funding has supported a Health Economics Evaluation study aimed at providing concrete evidence of the benefits, including improved workplace attendance and staff retention.
The Cambridgeshire Staff Mental Health Service stands out as a commendable model for addressing the mental health requirements of NHS personnel, particularly during times when a skilled and effective workforce is of utmost importance.
