Working Equilibrium

An innovative and interactive day to provide personal time and workload management skills, as well as develop those capabilities in others. Provided by Career Planning for Doctors and Dentists.

Working equilibrium is about achieving a sense of balance between the different aspects of one’s life. In contrast, feeling out of balance is a common experience for healthcare professionals working in demanding and pressurised roles. This can lead to a persistent lack of energy and reduced satisfaction with life both inside and outside of work.

This one-day workshop provides participants with an opportunity to consider personal priorities and the factors that can impact our wellbeing - in both positive and negative ways. The practical approach is grounded in evidence-based research. We will use tools and techniques to help participants develop a more sustainable sense of working equilibrium which they can apply to their own lives and share with their trainees.

Training in Provision of Careers Support for Medical Faculty

HEE (NW) have commissioned 2 sessions of training in providing careers advice and support to medical trainees. This course should be considered suitable for Foundation Programme Directors, Training Programme Directors, Medical Education Managers and others whose role requires them to deliver careers support. 

This practical workshop aims to demystify the task of providing careers support by outlining a tried and tested structured approach. The importance of ensuring that trainees are basing any career decisions on adequate self-assessment is highlighted and appropriate self-assessment resources are identified and sampled. Participants will be asked to bring brief anonymised case studies of trainees whom they struggled to provide careers support to. In addition, participants will also be helped to identify key warning signs suggesting that a particular trainee may need specialist support, above and beyond what a given faculty member feels able to provide.

Aims and Objectives of the Workshop:

  • Compare Clinical Decision Making with Career Decision Making
  • Introduce a structured approach to career planning
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of generic and medical-specific self-assessment tools
  • Review the ROADS checklist and consider how it can be used to encourage robust career
  • decision making
  • Introduce a supportive way of challenging trainees whose career plans you believe to be unrealistic
  • Consider which trainees may need specialist help with their career plans
