“Explore the process of Participatory Action Research in the health care setting”
This webinar will cover the importance of professional peer support for nurses and health professionals who work in isolation either professionally or geographically.
“Connecting the unconnected” is a sustainable model of professional peer support that enables empowerment, trust and rapport thereby improving clinical practice. This is an opportunity to allow professionals to debrief in a safe and understanding environment with like-minded colleagues who really understand.
An overview of Participatory Action Research and Communities of Practice will be given to enable an understanding of how the model of professional peer support was developed and the importance of working together democratically towards a common goal. Research is often thought of as time-consuming and difficult, however, it will be revealed how “we are all in this together” and some unexpected benefits of the research process.
Some anonymous statements from the original participants will be shared including an original diagram.
Finally, the key elements of “Connecting the unconnected” will be outlined to enable isolated health professionals to establish professional peer support for their own area of practice and become connected. “Connecting the unconnected” has embraced the use of digital technology blended with face to face meetings to provide ease of accessibility and reduce the tyranny of distance.
In this session you will:
- Recognise the importance of professional peer support
- Explore the process of Participatory Action Research in the health care setting
- Identify the key elements of Connecting the Unconnected
- Gain an understanding of how to establish professional peer support
