Pause is a collection of short creative challenges to support the wellbeing of Healthcare Staff. We recognise that taking time for our own health and wellbeing is important and doing so is beneficial to both our professional and personal lives.
With this in mind, the Pause ‘toolkit’ was created with four artists who focused on four different areas of creativity, which can be done individually or as a group or team.
The suite includes items that are not intrusive in your day but are designed for you to simply take a ‘micro-moment’ for yourself or for your team or other colleagues to take a longer challenge.
Think about how might these resources work for you and your teams? Where might these posters and laminates be most impactful in your hospital?
Pause is developed by the IHF’s Arts and Cultural Engagement team supported by the RENEW group. The RENEW groups includes Healthy Ireland, The HSE, Creative Ireland, The Arts Council, The Department of Health and the Department of Arts.
