Have you supported a tearful and or stressed doctor and want to know how to support them more effectively and appropriately?

This interactive online session delivered by Dr Viju Varadarajan aims to focus on the formative, supportive and caring element of wellbeing in appraisal. Demonstrating how you can support your peers during the process with an aim to help appraisers encourage doctors to reflect on their health and wellbeing as essential factors for high standards of professional practice.

The session will touch upon skills such as active listening, nonverbal cues etc. It will also highlight where to signpost to local Health Boards and national health and wellbeing provision in Wales for doctors and appraisers.

It will also start a discussion on how we demonstrate that a wellbeing discussion has taken place at appraisal and form the basis of the development of a wellbeing toolkit for appraisers and doctors across Wales.
