This Fringe event will share some of the activities that the Mind Matters Initiative has been delivering over the past months, with a focus on the upcoming SVN Wellbeing Discussion Forum event which is to be held in November 2021.
We will also share a summary of the preliminary results from the survey to SVNs, newly qualified RVNs and Clinical Coaches that was carried out over the summer, and which aimed to gather information on SVN wellbeing and help to inform future events and resources delivered by the MMI. With over 650 responses, we expect this session to cover a broad range of issues, and welcome attendance from newly qualified VNs, SVNs and those involved in VN Education.
We will also hold an interactive discussion with an aim to find positive actions to help some of the most prevalent wellbeing and stress issues identified in the survey.
