MedTRiM makes a difference through normalisation, education and mobilising social support. MedTRiM does not replace other clinical services but has been shown to sustainably make a difference.

In summary, this pilot has made it easier and more accessible for healthcare staff to access training that can support their wellbeing. It has also opened the door for a blending learning approach for trauma management when social distancing is no longer required. The pilot gave DNA Definitive the opportunity to create and test new online learning materials – providing a training resource to support the NHS of the future.


11th March 2021

122 medical practitioners from across Wales went through the pilot and their feedback will be instrumental in shaping future iterations of the course.
