Resilience in the workforce

The most important asset we have to enable high quality care is our workforce, both staff and volunteers, and responsible hospice leaders acknowledge this.

As staff seek to respond to the ever increasing activity and complexity of care, it is essential that organisations adopt both preventative and responsive strategies to enable staff to be resourceful and effective practitioners in such demanding times; the key to this is building their resilience.

In response to the Commission's findings and recommendations, we commissioned The Point of Care Foundation to examine the best available evidence and develop a framework for hospice leaders to consider what they can do to support their staff to flourish in stressful times.

The framework provides guidance on interventions from Board level to the individual, as building a resilient and flourishing workforce is everyone’s business.
