B11: Near-peer support for foundation doctors: a paradigm for supporting the multi-professional workforce
Dr Mike Masding
Dr Jeanette Dickson
- Delegates will understand what support helps doctors during the Foundation Programme.
- Delegates will learn how to set up a near-peer support scheme and engage key stakeholders in its delivery.
- Delegates will understand how to translate this scheme into a future model to support and retain the wider multi-professional team.
Under a new scheme, foundation doctors will receive near-peer support from senior trainees. This session will reflect on the context for this work – including the experiences of FiY1s and the revised Foundation Programme curriculum – and consider how the scheme may translate into a model to support the wider multi-professional team.
