Prioritising Practitioners Wellbeing (As Well As Everything Else)

Session Date:

In recent times, many health care professionals feel they are being asked to do more and more, with less and less – too few staff, too many patients, endless change and uncertainty (including at home), leaving many on the front line feeling exhausted. Given the situation, some practitioners understandably, are finding it hard to engage with work, and within such pressured environments, energy and enjoyment can seem elusive.

Fiona has had an interest in ‘clinician wellbeing’ for the last 15 years and has pulled together some ideas from the evidence, and from her work with many groups of health professionals throughout Australasia, to consider what can be done, rather than what can’t. She asks you to take this brief opportunity to reflect and prioritise yourself for an hour.
