During the coronapandemic the WAEH together with the team from Moorfields Eye Hospital, London organized two webinars about the Schwartz Rounds. This year we would like to organize these rounds again and are looking for panelists!
Schwartz Rounds provide a structured forum where all staff, clinical and non-clinical, come together regularly to discuss the emotional and social aspects of working in healthcare.
The purpose of Rounds is to understand the challenges and rewards that are intrinsic to providing care, not to solve problems or to focus on the clinical aspects of patient care. Rounds can help staff feel more supported in their jobs, to give them the time and space to reflect on their roles which they might not otherwise have in their everyday routines on busy hospital wards, theatres, clinics and departments.
In recent years, trained facilitators at Moorfields have successfully coordinated Schwartz Rounds as part of an event among the WAEH community. If you would like to share your story, please contact Maaike van Zuilen: Maaike.firstname.lastname@example.org.
