The 9th HealthWISE Training of Trainers

The 9th HealthWISE Training of Trainers was successfully delivered from 2 to 4 June in Wuhan Red Cross Hospital.

The TOT was co-organised by ILO Country Office for China and Mongolia, Peking Union Medical College of China Academy of Medical Sciences, and Hubei Provincial Health Commission. It aimed at enhancing awareness and building capacity of health service workforce for improving working conditions and occupational health and safety in health sector, addressing violence and harassment at work, and promoting family-friendly workplace. 36 participants from 14 hospitals in Wuhan attended the training.

The HealthWISE combines action and learning. It encourages managers and staff to work together to promote safe and healthy workplaces. This, in turn, helps improve health services’ performance and ability to deliver quality care to patients.

We hope to establish a network of HealthWISE trainers and practitioners to promote practical approaches that will contribute to strengthening health systems in China.
