Looking after yourself – good practice for trainees

A new set of RCPCH guidance is now available on the RCPCH website.  These were published following concerns and queries that came from the recent high profile case of Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba.

This guidance covers:

  • reflection
  • understaffed shifts
  • returning to clinical work after a period of absence
  • legal aspects of clinical practice
  • self-care and team working

It also contains links to further resources and who to contact for support and advice.
