The challenging working environments in the healthcare sector has been linked to the impairment of healthcare workers’ health and wellbeing.

This webinar shares the outcomes of a Wellcome-funded project looking to collate examples of staff wellbeing interventions in the UK healthcare sector that focus on the working environment, structure, or patterns of healthcare workers.
This session aims to: (i) emphasise the need for take a more holistic approach towards supporting healthcare worker wellbeing; (ii) introduce principles of identifying and managing psychosocial risks in the workplace; (iii) provide examples across different NHS contexts of organisational wellbeing interventions; (iv) reflect on lessons learnt that can serve to enhance our collective understanding of running interventions within complex and dynamic settings; and (v) highlight a resource guide summarising the examples and learnings from this project.
