Resources

Welcome to the Resources section of the website. Here you will find a collection of documents, websites, articles, books, presentations and videos relating to Careers, Educator Development and Medical Leadership.

You can filter the resources to make it easier to find what you are looking for. At the right hand side of the page (or at the bottom of the page if using a mobile device) you will find a number of tick boxes separated into Section, Category and Type. You can tick just one box or a number of boxes depending on what you are looking for but if your selection returns no resources you may need to broaden your search or try a different combination.

We hope that you find this page useful but if you experience any difficulties or have any suggestions for improvements please feel free to contact us at pgmde.nw@hee.nhs.uk.

An Introduction to the Resilience Resources

We all need resilience in our clinical work. There is increasing evidence that this is something we can learn and develop. The links provided within this section provide a range of resources - books, YouTube vidoes and articles. They also include an on-line questionnaire that helps you assess your own resilience, and give you ideas on how to develop your resilience further.

We suggest you browse through the resources listed to see what appeals to you.
