Supporting skills development and wellbeing across the NHS workforce
Widening access to CPD for frontline staff
Feedback we’ve received from clinical teams has suggested that professional development has declined over the past year as a result of the pandemic. AbbVie supports medical education across a number of medical disciplines, as well as the ongoing dissemination of the latest clinical developments. Through a clinically led faculty across inflammatory conditions, AbbVie facilitates best practice sharing across the NHS and provides accessible CPD accredited content for time-poor frontline staff, to maintain scientific knowledge and clinical best practices. Since the start of the pandemic, AbbVie’s Immunology and Oncology Medical teams have provided >2000 CPD accredited hours of educational sessions to UK HCPs.
Promoting the wellbeing of the workforce
The impact of the pandemic on the people that work in the NHS is often forgotten, and yet the physical and mental legacy left by the pandemic on NHS staff has the potential to hinder NHS Restart if it is not addressed.
AbbVie put NHS Staff front and centre during a sponsored session at the 2021 NHS Confederation Conference, titled “The Inside Out Approach to developing Personal Resilience: Helping You Make Mindful Choices to Support the NHS Recovery”. The session was hosted by Dr Nerina Ramalkhan, physiologist and sleep expert, and focused on giving practical insights and strategies for developing personal resilience to teams from across the NHS who attended the session.
This is a subject that is relevant to all of us as we start our own personal journeys towards recovery after the pandemic, and excerpts from the session can be accessed below:
