The SAFEMED Programme is an evidence based stress management, wellbeing and resilience programme that runs over eight hours and has compulsory elements; these are embedded into the all the five years of undergraduate training. The programme uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) tools, developed to promote emotional health and proactive self-care for healthcare professionals in training and in practice. SAFEMED utilises stress inoculation training concepts. Coping skills taught in the resilience training employ CBT techniques (cognitive behavioural therapy). CBT is a systematic approach to building healthy thinking and emotions. SIT consists of three phases: Awareness and conceptualisation of stress, coping skills Acquisition, and Application/ exposure. Consistent with the way vaccines promote the production of antibodies, the exposure component of SIT builds and strengthens coping through the development of personal support plans. The programme has been delivered to more than 4,000 doctors and students.
