Gareth and Enfys delivered a Lightbulb Training Solutions - Penarth Practice bespoke interactive workshop on “Creating A Solution-Focused Positive Working Environment & Managing Workplace Stress” for The Wales Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Programme.
There were 20 specialist nurses and team leaders at The Butetown Community Centre’s Training Room (Wednesday 9th November), who received an insight into:
* How the brain works
* How the workplace can create Stress, Anxiety, Depression and what can be done about these and other issues and challenges.
* How positivity boosts us personally and professionally, improving productivity and morale
* An introduction to Neuroscience (the study of the brain), Neuroplasticity (literally how we can change the physical structure of our brain, positively or negatively) and Neuropsychoimmunology (how the brain affects the rest of our health system)
* Ways of managing Workplace Stress (engaging in positivity and solutions)
* Clinical Hypnotherapy Relaxation (a 15 minute introduction to relaxation)
"We were fortunate to have the professional expertise and credentials of Lightbulb Training Solutionas when they delivered the Solution Focused Workplace Wellbeing, Stress Management, Team Bonding and Positivity Workshop to our team of nurses. It was extremely successful, valuable and interactive - the feedback was fantastic!" Joanne Jones (WAAASP Regional Coordinator, NHS Wales)
About The Wales Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Programme
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening summary
- The aorta is the main blood vessel that supplies blood to the body. Sometimes the wall of the aorta in the abdomen can become weak and stretch to form an aneurysm. When this happens there is a risk that the aorta may split or tear (rupture).
- We will invite 65-year-old men who live in Wales and who are registered with a GP practice.
- The aim of the screening programme is to reduce the number of ruptured AAA and deaths.
- AAA screening involves a simple ultrasound scan to measure the abdominal aorta.
- The scan is usually painless but may be slightly uncomfortable due to pressure on the abdomen.
- It is a free NHS screening test.
- A person who is not in the screening age group and are concerned that they may have an AAA or are worried about a family history of AAA; they should speak to their GP.
- Like all medical tests, AAA screening is not 100% accurate.
