IAPT Workforce Wellbeing
This is an opportunity for attendees to share their different approaches to staff wellbeing. What has worked well? How effective is their staff retention? Benchmark your service and identify positive practices and new ideas you can implement for your staff.
IAPT has some strong drivers and when resources are tight and targets are high, pressure is put on staff. Does your service work collectively? Or do you think that a toxic culture is developing? This conference will tackle the importance of communicating and setting an environment where staff are listened to, leadership is enabled and people feel involved. When stressed staff result in poor patient outcomes, this conference is essential to enable your service to progress and meet 2020 targets.
