Performing Medicine provides 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 led by expert facilitators who draw on techniques from the arts to help healthcare professionals 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 20+ years of experience, our courses address the sector’s most pressing issues and are accessible to all who work within health and social care.
The pandemic has profoundly affected the way healthcare professionals work, with online consultations, social distancing and PPE creating challenges to the way we interact with people in a compassionate way. We support healthcare staff to meet these new challenges and constraints, adapting their ways of working and developing practical techniques to get through the 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
