Webinar: Peer support networks - engaging health care professionals
Tuesday 9th November 2021, 18:00 - 19:00
In the final Peer Support Network webinar of this series, Carol Stonham will discuss considerations when planning meetings, tips for engaging those that attend during online or attended meetings, and maintaining interest and enthusiasm between meetings. It will help in attracting and retaining other health care team members in your network and help to rejuvenate your group.
The presentation will be followed by a Q & A session.

Chair: Emma Thompson
I work as the Lead Nurse at the South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw Primary Care Workforce & Training Hub with a special interest in respiratory work. I have been a nurse for over 25 years and have worked in a variety of settings including as a Practice Nurse and Primary Care Development Nurse within Sheffield CCG. I have been involved in different respiratory initiatives in Primary Care in Sheffield and am passionate about sharing best practice and facilitating learning across the multidisciplinary team. I have chaired the South Yorkshire Respiratory Interest Group since early 2019, and have a great committee who work with me. We hold well attended regular educational sessions for health care professionals across the region. These “learning lunches” have been delivered virtually during the pandemic.
