06/02/2024 NASP webinar: Supporting Link Workers in their role and induction

Social Prescribing Link Workers (SPLWs) are a key role in personalised care that can transform the health and wellbeing of individuals. SPLWs often join teams of varied health professionals and organisations that are revolutionising the way we practice health care in the UK.

In September 2023, our pilot Link Worker Advisory Group (LWAG) created a Link Worker Induction Guide to support Link Workers in their day-to-day practice in the first weeks of the role.

In this session we will hear from alumni members of the LWAG who developed this piece of work, and SPLWs who have utilised the guide, to hear more about what it means to put it into practice.

This session will include:

  • Useful tips for the first few weeks of a link worker role
  • Demonstrations of putting toolkits into practice
  • Guidance for managers on supporting new recruits
  • Practical tips on some of the duties of the SPLW role

Please note that due to a technical error, the BSL interpretation was not recorded on this webinar. We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
