    DescriptionRadio broadcast and interview on Express FM discussing the introduction of Schwartz Rounds at University of Portsmouth

    The University of Portsmouth is running a programme to encourage newly qualified and soon to be qualified health and social care workers to discuss the emotional aspects of their profession in a safe space.
    NHS England South East has funded four universities and six NHS Trusts on the south coast to run Schwartz Rounds, in an effort to bolster interprofessional learning, reduce psychological distress and promote staff wellbeing.
    The voluntary forums offer people working and training in the field a regularly scheduled time during their fast-paced work lives to share their experiences, thoughts and feelings.
