The second outcome of this project was to develop a wellbeing and recovery support tool.
WRAPT stands for, work, risks, awareness, play & think.
The aim behind this tool is to provide an opportunity for students to be able to reflect on clinical incidents that they attend from a wellbeing point of view, rather than the traditional assessment technique. The tool is structured in the five areas as above, Work - identify what the incident was, Risk- the emotional risks associated with this incident, Awareness- of feelings as well as support available, Play - how they can relax and recharge ready for the next patient or shift and finally Think – Who can this be sent to?
Please watch the below video of a student paramedic who was part of the pilot study discussing the tool and demonstrating its use:
