How to cope and thrive as a medical practitioner in challenging times

About the course: Coping and thriving in Healthcare

Having worked with GPs since 2006, we have an understanding of the particular pressures of their role, which have increased dramatically over the past 2 years of the pandemic. This course is designed to empower you not only to survive, but to thrive despite the considerable burdens and changes to working practice that you have been experiencing. It has been taught to members of the RCGP: like all the courses here, it will be adapted to the particular needs of participants.

What you will learn

  • The challenges of working from home/in isolation, and how this affects us 

  • How to deal with ‘overload’ 

  • How to manage the often conflicting demands put on us 

  • The skills and habits we can make more of 

  • How to breathe more effectively to improve our heart rate variability and our ability to respond to challenging experience 

  • The power of positive emotions and how to access these to improve our ability to cope 

  • The importance of getting enough slow-wave sleep and how to ensure we sleep well 

  • Straightforward exercises to boost resilience 

  • How recognising and exploiting our key strengths makes us more resourceful

Are courses tailored to individual needs?

Absolutely. This course has been delivered in the past, and is designed to give you a flavour of what we can offer you. All courses are refined to meet each client’s requirements.

Through discussion (email, phone or zoom) we will get a clear sense of the needs of the organisation/the participants and then design a course specifically to respond to these.

We will always include clear ‘learning outcomes’ in the final version of courses we construct with and for you.

Course duration

The length of courses will vary according to what you need, your aspirations and your time constraints.

How are courses delivered?

All teaching and learning is fully immersive: people learn much more when they are actively engaged. Each course includes individual, pair and group work as well as directed learning. All participants are welcome to email questions after the event, and follow-ups (often very useful) are always offered.

What are the costs?

The cost of each course will vary, and will be agreed with you once a full course outline has been produced.

As a rough guide, we charge around £800 per day, to include preparation, delivery, response to post-course questions and distribution of course materials.

Half days are pro-rata.

Is teaching remote or in-person?

Teaching and learning is, wherever possible, face to face. This improves both the quality and quantity of learning, as well as being more enjoyable.

Learning via zoom can be arranged if practical constraints make face to face impossible.
