Managing Stress and Pressure - E-Learning at Acacia Training

Course description

This module is all about how, by gaining understanding of what stress and pressure are and what factors affect them, you can have an influence on the wellbeing of your team. Prevention is always better than a cure, so if you understand how the body works you can begin to take active steps to promote positive wellbeing and minimise the effects of stress. The module educates managers on how to manage pressure in themselves and others and details the legalities and implications of stress at work. It looks at what factors affect wellbeing and cause stress, at how to identify stress signs and how they can be prevented. The programme has been created by Wellbeing4business in partnership with the Virtual College and has been written by experts in Occupational Health, attendance and employment law. Main contributors were Joan Lewis, Dr Les Smith and managers and Human Resources professionals at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust.
