NHS Employers is working with Robertson Cooper to develop a tool for the NHS, which is a measure of emotional wellbeing. We want you to get involved with the developing and defining.
We are hosting a twitter chat to talk about what emotional wellbeing means to you, we'll also discuss:
- how the tool could be used across the NHS by individuals or teams, and the discussions it might start
- the impact it has when you're working with patients
Monday 7 April, 8pm with @NHSE_Dean & @ProfCaryCooper #feelingoodtoday
New to Twitter chats?
Twitter chats are often regular chats that take place at a specific time around a predetermined subject and use a hashtag (#) as a flag that binds a conversation (sometimes they are not planned ), they are an excellent way to use Twitter professionally to discuss topics with peers (and often beyond peers).
To become a part of this twitter chat and helping develop the definition of emotional health and wellbeing in the NHS first you should:
- Have a twitter account - to register http://www.twitter.com
- Keep an eye out for when Twitter chats are on by following the hosts on twitter.
- Twitter controls the speed of the stream of tweets so it can be a little slow at first for your tweet to appear.
- Watch the chat first to get the vibe.
- Don’t panic! Some chats are very fast but you don't have to read it all or interact with everyone, just stick to one part of the chat that interests you. You can always re-read the whole chat later.
- Catch ups aren't just for those who missed the chat – take some time to read the summary and transcript of the chat afterwards – you will be amazed at what you missed.
- Enjoy chatting! It isn't an exam – it's a chat. Have fun and enjoy sharing.
