Dr Laura Golding’s presentation: “Running Interprofessional Schwartz Rounds with Healthcare Students at the University of Liverpool

Schwartz Rounds are a multidisciplinary forum for healthcare-staff to reflect together on emotional challenges associated with their work. This talk will provide details about how Schwartz Rounds are run at the University of Liverpool with students, predominantly undergraduates, from nine healthcare programmes – medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, diagnostic radiography, therapeutic radiography, occupational therapy, orthoptics, dentistry, and clinical psychology. This will include how Rounds are adapted for a student audience and, more recently, the experience of running Rounds remotely as well as presentation of qualitative and quantitative evaluation data. The University of Liverpool is leading the Schwartz North project (funded by Health Education England North), enabling nine universities in the North of England to run Schwartz Rounds with healthcare students. A brief overview of the project will also be presented.

Dr Laura Golding is a Clinical Psychologist, Senior Lecturer and Programme Director of the University of Liverpool’s Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme. She is also the Schwartz Round Lead for the University of Liverpool. She has led on the development and evaluation of running Schwartz Rounds with students from ten healthcare programmes at the university since 2016.  She is also the lead for a Health Education England North funded project – ‘Schwartz North’ – working with nine universities in the North of England to enable them to run Schwartz Rounds with healthcare students.
