The next Schwartz Round will take place via Microsoft Teams, and will focus on the topic ‘A Patient or Colleague I’ll Never Forget’ on Friday 16th September between 12:30pm – 1:30pm.

We are still seeking storytellers for the round, and ask any colleague who would like to share their experience and story about an unforgettable patient or colleague to get in touch with us on [email protected].

A trained facilitator works with our storytellers to prepare them for the Round and offer any aftercare needed. More information on what is involved in storytelling can be viewed in the guidance documentation.

Schwartz Rounds have been a resounding success since their launch at Gateshead, over 90% of colleagues sharing that they helped to understand their colleagues better, understand their own roles more and took away learnings that would benefit them in their day-to-day work.

To get involved as a storyteller, or request an invitation to attend, please drop us a line on [email protected]. You can also help us to promote the round by downloading and displaying the poster via the button below.
