We know how important it is to our members in the health sector that they have time to develop their skills and knowledge. We also know that with the current climate in the health sector, this has become more and more difficult to achieve. That’s why we’ve launched Unite in Health Thinking Time (#UiHTT).
#UiHTT will cover topics that our members tell us are important. And to help with less time being available to be involved in training we’ve developed it in a ‘webinar’ style. The modules are free to Unite Health Sector members and once you apply on the online form for a session, we’ll send you details of how to join in that session.
How will the session work?
Have a look at the sessions below and if you’re a member and want to join in, use the form at the bottom of the page to book. Once you’ve registered, you’ll get an email from us telling you about the webinar login details. It will include a number for you to phone (so you can hear the presentation) and a website for you to visit (so you can watch the presentation slides). It might sound complicated but in our early pilot sessions, members found this style easy to join in with.
#UiHTT Think Again
Here you can watch previous sessions and download the presentations.
We know that members won't always be free when we are doing the live UiHTT broadcast or there will be some members who have heard the session but will want to listen to it again. For those members we have got #UiHTT Think Again, which collects together the presentation for you to watch and listen to and also stores all the slides for each session. You can access the #UiHTT Think Again site by clicking on the link on the logo to the left.

Building health visitor resilience: Through a student support group. The student support group was initiated by Practice Educators Pamela Shaw and Paula Elliott during the Health Visiting Implementation Plan and it has continued to have a critical role in ensuring the teaching quality and learning experience of students.
The aim is to ensure student health visitors are adequately prepared for qualification and compliments the learning undertaken by Practice Educators in the clinical setting.
The group gives students a nurturing, safe and supportive environment that promotes learning and personal resilience:
It enables students to address stress factors and improve wellbeing through peer support whilst simultaneously delivering opportunities for learning and promoting preparedness for qualification.
This session is recommended for practice educators, mentors and any practitioners working with students.
