    Suicide Prevention Conference: Reaching those at most risk

    The suicide rate in Britain fell by 4.7% in 2016; the third consecutive annual reduction.

The Health Select Committee has labelled the Government’s National Suicide Prevention Strategy England “essentially sound” but called for more funding and a greater focus on practical implementation.

    Schwartz Community Event

    Developed by the Schwartz Center in Boston; Schwartz Rounds have been implemented in more than 300 sites in the USA and over 115 in the UK. Schwartz Rounds are a structured confidential multidisciplinary forum designed for all staff to come together once a month to discuss and reflect on the emotional and social aspects of caring for patients (not to solve problems). Schwartz Rounds can help staff feel more supported in their jobs; to give them the time and space to reflect on their roles which they might not otherwise have in their everyday routines on busy hospital wards. At each Schwartz Round a panel of three or four staff describe an experience relating to care or interactions with patients. Following this; two trained facilitators open the discussion to the audience and encourage the staff to reflect on the emotional experience of delivering care. The facilitators have been trained to deliver the Schwartz Rounds according to a specific model; which is structured and evidenced-based. This year we will be hosting two Schwartz Rounds conferences to provide an opportunity for all members of the Schwartz Community to come together and share and reflect on their experiences of running Schwartz Rounds; as well as the chance to think about the future of Rounds. The conferences will be run in London and Manchester and will each follow a similar programme (see full programmes attached) Hosting the conferences in two locations will allow for more local networking and support in helping run Schwartz Rounds.
