Interventions for Staff Wellbeing in Paediatric Critical Care

Welcome to SWell!

The SWell project started with a research project funded by Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital Charity. It aimed to investigate wellbeing interventions for staff that work in Paediatric Critical Care.

We then developed the work nationally working in partnership with the Paediatric Critical Care Society and with NHS England.

The SWell project team comprises applied health psychology researchers based at Aston University, Birmingham, and clinical colleagues working in paediatric critical care in the United Kingdom.

What does wellbeing mean to you? How is your wellbeing challenged at work? What can you do to improve and maintain your wellbeing at work? These simple questions can help you along the way to being happier and healthier both at work and at home.
