Performing Medicine, specialist in arts-based healthcare training and research, has launched a series of free virtual sessions available throughout March for the health and social care workforce.

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated collaboration between the arts and health and social care sectors, especially around mental health and wellbeing, with arts-based interventions increasingly being incorporated across services to support current challenges.

In response to these exceptional circumstances, Performing Medicine has continued to adjust its training programmes to provide essential support for the health and social care sector workforce; launching free sessions, thanks to the generous support of a number of funding bodies, alongside its existing offering.

The sessions, hosted on Zoom, are available at selected dates throughout March and include:

Professor Suzy Willson, Director at Performing Medicine, an initiative founded by charity Clod Ensemble, said: “With the health and social care workforce experiencing increased levels of burnout and exhaustion due to the stress and trauma of dealing with the pandemic, mental health and wellbeing is top priority. Performing Medicine equips frontline workers with the skills and resources to help improve their own wellbeing and self-care.  Our sessions are designed exclusively for health and social care professionals to join free of charge; empowering frontline workers to look after themselves, their teams and their patients.  Everyone is welcome to join.”
