Whilst the Faculty promote personal development to aid your resilience skills and ability to manage the challenges working in a high-pressure specialty; we recognise these challenges are often related to resourcing and workforce issues outside of personal control.The Faculty is focused on broader workforce development to address this. Regional workforce meetings, the annual census and the data bank can all be used to identify and address local support and resourcing issues.
