This is one of the recommendations from the ‘departmental’ section of the RCOG/RCM undermining toolkit.
Receiving support from colleagues has been identified as a crucial element to building resilience in midwifery. In addition, encouraging team members to have a good work–life balance and to leave work issues behind when off duty should be encouraged.
See also the material on resilience in the ‘unit, trust or local education provider’ section of this toolkit.
