Performing Medicine have worked closely with Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Trust to develop a bespoke new framework for compassionate care and accompanying training programme called Circle Of Care, which reached over 800 Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Trust staff in 2018/19.
Since 2001, Performing Medicine has co-designed and delivered innovative, artist-led modules with educators at the Barts and the London SMD including Preparing for Clinical Placement, Voice and Presentation Skills, Non-Verbal Communication and Diversity. In 2018/19 we provided more than 80 training sessions for 1,235 medical students.
We worked with SBUHB’s Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Unit to test how arts based methodologies could be employed at three older people mental health services wards to deliver professional training aligned with SBUHB’s values that would support staff wellbeing and resilience.
Performing Medicine has worked with the BMA twice in the last 2 years to create interactive forums on Bullying & Harassment and Staff Sickness, working with audiences of 500 at the association’s symposiums and AGM.
In 2018 and 2019, we designed and delivered workshops on Resilience, Self-care and Compassion for healthcare professionals at Health Education England’s Springboard: Return to Practice Conference.
