The COVID-19 pandemic has placed enormous strain on medical practitioners. New ways of working have been required and practitioners have had to juggle constraints on time, personnel and resources. More than ever, Medical Protection believes it is critical to support members to sustain high performance by caring for colleagues and team members during this period of significant risk.

Risk Prevention and Cognitive Institute Senior Medical Educator, Dr Lynne McKinlay shares practical, evidence-based strategies to care for colleagues during this unprecedented time in our professional lives. This is the second webinar in Medical Protection’s series of two focussed on sustaining mental and physical wellbeing during COVID-19 and beyond.

Whether it be how you can advocate for, or contribute to, sustaining high team performance as a doctor and/or medical leader, this recorded webinar provides you with the opportunity to hear from an experienced medical leader who has a deep understanding of clinical risk management and sustaining safety cultures. Learn how you can protect your patients, yourself and your colleagues in this time of crisis.

This webinar has been specifically designed by experts to support Medical Protection members who work in or lead teams.
