The Training in Psychological Skills - Paediatric Healthcare (TIPS-PH) programme aims to increase psychological capability and capacity amongst all paediatric healthcare staff.
It acknowledges that all staff contribute to psychosocial care for children and young people and aims to enhance competency and confidence in psychological skills within all disciplines and levels of expertise. Training is accessible to all paediatric health and social care staff.
The programme includes core and advanced skills-based workshops, e-learning and online resources for paediatric and neonatal healthcare staff. Workshops are delivered both nationally and as local events delivered by a network of local paediatric psychologists across Scotland.
You can find more information in the leaflet about the content of our training programme [PDF].

University College London in association with NES have developed a competency framework for psychological approaches and interventions in multidisciplinary paediatric health settings. This was launched in March 2018.
The framework makes suggestions about best practice, in light of current knowledge of the effectiveness of psychological approaches and interventions. The aim of the Framework is to ensure that services are delivered in a psychologically informed way, integrating physical health with psychological wellbeing and mental health.
Please find the framework, along with a background document on the University College London website.
