An interactive webinar to discuss learnings from past fire seasons and what works in supporting workforce wellbeing.
Phoenix Australia will present some of the long-term learnings from the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, lead a discussion about emerging health issues following the 2019-2020 bushfires and discuss best practice ways to help your workforce and communities psychologically prepare for the coming season.
Learn about Phoenix Australia’s brief trauma-related training to GPs and their practice staff, as well as the Black Dog Institute’s Bush Fire Support Service.
Join a panel of trauma experts from Phoenix Australia and the Black Dog Institute as they discuss:
- What do the 2009 research findings tell us about impacts and recovery?
- How does this help you prepare now?
- Learn about best practice strategies to support yourself, your staff, and your community
- Hear from a GP from a fire-impacted region about their experience and learnings
