Keynote: Wellbeing at work (optional)
In response to the rising prevalence of stress and burnout among health professionals, The BMJ is running a campaign for doctors’ wellbeing. It calls for doctors to be able to take breaks and to have places where they can rest and recuperate, for their own and their patients’ safety. Working together with the BMA, the Royal colleges, employers and patient groups, this is a united effort to change systems, working practices, and culture to ensure that doctors get the breaks they need.
Minicourse: Taking control of your workload
The aim of the course is to give you the skills to build resilience, effectively manage your workload and give the best care to your patients while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
