Performing Medicine delivers creative training programmes for healthcare professionals and students. We address staff wellbeing and mental health, compassionate care, effective communication, leadership and teamwork.
Our practical, hands-on workshops are delivered by expert facilitators who draw on techniques from the arts to help healthcare professionals to better look after themselves and each other, and to use their bodies and voices for effective communication.
These courses can be offered online, in person (when restrictions allow), or as a blended approach to suit you. With 15+ years of experience, our courses are accessible to all who work within healthcare.
Our training focuses on the human side of care, addressing the sector’s most pressing issues.
The pandemic has profoundly affected the way we work, with online consultations, social distancing and PPE creating challenges to the way we interact with people in a compassionate way. We can support healthcare staff to cope with these new challenges and constraints, developing practical techniques to get through the challenging times ahead.
Courses include Managing Stress, Self Care, Effective Communication, Diversity & Inclusion, Working in PPE, Team Building, Presentation Skills and Presenting Online.find out more
