We were honoured to provide the Cancer Research Facilitator Team with pro bono learning sessions to help them adapt to virtual working in response to COVID-19
We really valued Wharton’s support during this testing time as we start to develop creative ways to engage with GPs and other healthcare professionals using remote technology. They carefully considered our needs, designing and delivering tailored workshops that our team could engage withSenior Operations Manager, Health Professional Engagement Facilitation
WhartonBC were engaged to design and deliver a series of briefings to this incredible team who support and educate GPs across the UK to improve the early diagnosis and prevention of cancer.
The first session was focused on psychological behaviour and the engagement of people through change. Through a mix of education, reflection and a touch of action planning – we helped the team to explore the way people may react to the current situation and its challenges to help inform their messaging and actions.
The second session was focused on top tips for engaging with people virtually. Throughout the session we focused on what the Facilitator Team could do to get the most from virtual engagement with their partners. We explored how to get the basics right technically and logistically, how to communicate professionally and how to maximise the engagement of their audiences.
We are delighted that the team found our sessions ‘interesting and interactive… with many attendees saying Wharton were the highlight of their Facilitator Programme Learning Week’.
