As part of the continuing partnership working between QNIS, Capacitar Scotland and COPE Scotland, we are delighted to share this wellbeing resource designed with nurses and midwives in mind.
This is part of the work supported by the COVID-19 Healthcare Support Appeal (CHSA). An initiative to explore recovery and resilience with community nurses and midwives as we collectively reflect on the COVID-19 journey so far and a partnership with ‘’More Choices for More People’’. A COPE Scotland self-management for Scotland funded project. Administered on behalf of the Scottish Government by The Health and Social Care Alliance (The Alliance) with support from the William Grant foundation.
We think its important that we do not seek to reinvent the wheel. This initial booklet we hope celebrates some of the work already being done. This resource booklet will be updated in May 2022 so if you see anything missing you would like added please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The resource booklet does not seek to replace professional advice. It is a resource which offers some selfcare ideas as well as points for reflection and information about services and supports.
This is a booklet which you can dip in and out of as suits your needs. The contents include:
- Tips on the art of communication as sometimes even though we care for others, we can find it a challenge sharing how we are feeling.
- Assessing your wellbeing
- Tips for visualisation
- Goal setting snakes and ladders
- Tips for journaling
- Compassion fatigue
- Tips to manage guilt
- Anxiety and low mood
- Unhelpful coping strategies
- Grief, Loss & Tears
- Other life stressors

- Self-care and support for you
- Spiritual Care
- Activities to unwind
- Make a personal promise today
This booklet was created in partnership because we care and believe your wellbeing matters too. We hope you find it useful. Please continue to visit our website or follow us on Twitter @QNI_Scotland for updates on other developments and opportunities which you may find of interest.
