Paediatric Research Across the Midlands
Trainee wellbeing Interest group Project- High Impact Interventions?
This year the Trainee Well being Interest Group (TWIG) of the PRAM group had the opportunity to present some of our work in 3 posters at the virtual RCPCH poster portal.
Our work has been based on an anonymous trainee survey carried out between December- 2018 and March-2019 looking at trainee experience with 8 High Impact Interventions recommended by NHS Improvement.
In the first poster '8 High Impact Interventions: A Regional survey of trainee experience' we summarise emerging themes and examples of good practice and make key regional recommendations.
In the second poster 'No news isn't necessarily good news: Regional experience of Exception Reporting by trainees' we focus on the discrepancy between reported extra hours worked by trainees and lack of Exception Reporting, and explore why this may be. Quality improvement projects have subsequently been commenced and have successfully addressed some of these barriers.
Finally, in the 3rd poster 'Getting more for less: Tackling work pressures faced by paediatric trainees' we outline trainees' experience with working pressures and explore ways to alleviate these by utilising resources more efficiently.
Our ongoing aim is to improve the working conditions of paediatric trainees across the region through quality improvement projects. We are working in conjunction with the Trainee Support Network and Trainee Committee Wellbeing Rep to achieve this.
