Endeavour Update: Remote and Restorative Courses
April and May have been busy months for our Remote and Restorative courses in the Southwest, with 3 courses held on Dartmoor and 3 in Coverack Cornwall. The Remote and Restorative courses use outdoor remote medicine simulations to foster connections with colleagues and generate teams. Working together through simulations in unfamiliar environments and new equipments breaks down barriers that enables an open and supportive culture during our mental health and resilience workshops.
Course feedback from F2s and Consultants alike includes:
“This is the best course I’ve attended - ever!”
“We should all do this course - every year, I’m returning to work feeling more motivated and inspired , thank you”.
"I feel rejuvenated and encouraged for my future career. I was beginning to feel burnt out and discouraged. Being outdoors, with lovely people was exactly what we all needed. We also learnt really important and helpful clinical skills.”
"Fantastic course. Manages to restore well being, enthusiasm for the job again, and stimulate ideas to support colleagues, improve leadership and well being in my own department.”
"This was a really excellent course. I was sad to leave at the end. I came away with thoughts about myself as a person, as a leader, and also my general wellbeing and work/life balance. It was great to have the time, space and structure to think about these things. I found it very helpful to hear colleagues/peers thoughts on things. I loved how much everyone engaged with the course - it's quite unusual for every person to attend every session, but I think they pretty much did!"
We enjoyed a joint training session with the RNLI and Lizard Life boat, and a huge thanks to the RNLI crew of Rose and Coverack Windsurf centre in helping to facilitate this session.
