Doctors face a number of stresses in their work which can detrimentally affect their mental health. In recognition of the importance of promoting wellbeing among doctors, Child Bereavement UK is pleased to have been awarded a grant from BMA Giving to develop and deliver a series of monthly webinars.

Each 1-hour webinar focuses on

  • Aspects of work that compromise your wellbeing.
  • Factors increasing the risk of deterioration in doctors’ mental health.
  • The impact of working with loss, death and grief, both personally and professionally.
  • Strategies to build and maintain resilience, including monitoring your stress levels, your reactions to loss and your vulnerability.
  • The dual process model of coping with bereavement.
  • Compassion fatigue and burnout: signs and contributory factors
  • Barriers to seeking help.
  • What helps in developing a culture of care.
