The What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care seeks partners for ‘Schwartz Rounds’ pilot project

Woman relaxing alone with cup of tea

Schwartz Rounds are a unique forum in which people delivering healthcare can come together and reflect on their experiences. They have a simple aim: to support staff well-being, build empathy and compassion across organisations, and improve the quality of care.

Evidence shows that healthcare staff who attend regularly feel less stressed and less isolated and our researchers want to know whether similar results might be found in children’s social care. We want to see if Schwartz Rounds can help social workers feel more supported in their jobs, allowing time and space to think and reflect.

If you are interested in taking part in this study, please visit the What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care website where you will find further information and the application form.

Application submission: No later than midday on 18 February 2019.
