About this resource
Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with Health Education England’s Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT) team to develop a new elearning resource on positive culture within the workplace.
Building a More SuppoRTTive Culture explores the significance of organisational culture in shaping the experience of postgraduate doctors in training returning to work after a break and offers guidance on the measures that individuals can take to bring about positive cultural change, creating an NHS in which its staff can thrive and that is safe for the patients it serves.
Developed with contributions from experts in the field, such as Professor Michael West CBE (Senior Fellow at The Kings Fund) and Professor Jim Barrie (Senior Lecturer in Medical Education at Edge Hill University), the 40-minute session highlights the fundamental role of every single person within the healthcare system, clinical and non-clinical, in building a positive, supportive culture.
Although the resource aims to help create a positive culture for returning postgraduate doctors in training (with all the benefits this brings) it has wider implications for, and parallels with, how we build a more supportive culture more generally within the NHS.
