A key part of improving care quality is ensuring that those who deliver care are themselves well looked after. Our work supporting healthcare staff is led through our stewardship and promotion of Schwartz Rounds in the UK and Ireland. Responding to the particular challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have developed ‘Team Time’ as a forum for smaller groups of colleagues to share stories and reflect together online. We also conduct research and engagement work to understand and support staff wellbeing across a range of settings.
