Returning to acute clinical practice whether it be post maternity leave, research, OOPE or career break is daunting for the best of us.
There is the worry that your clinical knowledge is rusty,your resuscitation skills aren’t up-to-scratch and that new changes in paediatrics and training have passed you by. Add to that any number of possible stressful factors: a new baby, a PhD to finish writing up, the challenges of working part-time, dealing with ongoing health issues, juggling academia and on-call rotas etc etc it is no wonder that many health professionals find the transition difficult.
BUT…help is at hand! This latest course developed by the London School of Paediatrics builds upon the previous Return from Maternity Leave courses but is open to anyone returning to acute paediatrics and to nurses as well as doctors. The multi-disciplinary and multi-level aspect lends itself well to simulation sessions to provide a stress-free opportunity to practice resuscitation and team working skills.
We hope to run the course three times a year.
The course is FREE and will include:
- Hot topics talk: signposting to key updates in paediatrics
- High fidelity paediatric simulation scenarios
- Workshops addressing issues associated with flexible training, academic training, maintaining a work-life balance and completing work-place based assessments and your eportfolio
- Information on the peer mentoring scheme and an opportunity to network with other trainees returning and the course faculty
