This course aims to help young Consultants and senior SpRs/Fellows navigate the demands of a rapidly changing NHS. The principles of keeping both patients and clinicians safe are covered through a series of didactic and interactive sessions. Professor Peter Shah will lead a team of experienced clinicians who will share their experiences of tackling real-life day-to-day problems in clinical practice. The sessions will focus on anticipating and preventing high-risk situations. Professor Shah is passionate about protecting young Consultants by helping them develop essential skill-sets for surviving the stresses of the modern workplace.
Due to the interactive nature of this course, the number of delegates are limited to 30 only. This is a 2-day course and delegates will benefit the most by attending both days. However, the option of attending one day only is available for those who are unable to commit to 2 days.
