The Intensive Care Society has released a wellbeing resource pack developed with Dr Julie Highfield, Clinical Psychologist. The poster series aims to improve our understanding of psychological wellbeing at work, the impact reduced wellbeing can have and what we can do in response, and includes tips for dealing with extraordinary situations such as COVID-19 and everyday working in critical care.

Second Victim Support Website
Supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Yorkshire and Humber Patient Safety Translational Research Centre, the website: www.secondvictim.co.uk aims to help second victims identify the types of support they may need and signpost them towards that help. It also features some powerful personal stories of how incidents have affected staff emotionally and professionally.
Based on evidence gathered from many studies into the impact of patient safety incidents on the staff involved, and their personal experiences, the website also encourages a safety culture where such incidents are managed in a way that enables learning and improves systems.
The research team hopes the website will be used by healthcare professionals who are second victims themselves, their managers and other teams including HR, risk management, occupational health and organisational development.
