Resilience in the workplace – help yourself

Clinicians are good at giving health advice to their patients but are they good at taking their own advice? Apparently not always.

It’s important that you feel mentally healthy, safe and valued at work, so you can perform at your best and flourish in life. When you put all your effort into looking after others and don’t make self-care a priority, problems can arise.

Burnout and compassion fatigue are on the agenda for the Clarence Valley Clinical Society’s next CPD Bites event, on Thursday 17 June at [email protected], 139 Fitzroy Street Grafton.

This event will provide networking and time for sharing of ideas to create more awareness, recognition of the warning signs, and strategies to combat the occupational reality of clinical workplace stress.

Attendees will hear how to intervene proactively when someone is at risk of burnout. There will be advice on help with recovery and preventing problems arising in the first place through a guided journey for positive wellbeing.

The evening will also cover local resources and support for reducing workplace stress in the Clarence Valley region.

Outcomes from the event will include participants being able to:

  • identify the professional and personal stressors that may impact resilience in the workplace
  • identify the impact of toxic stress on physical and mental health
  • recognise the warning signs of compassion fatigue and burnout
  • develop practical and effective strategies to reduce burnout and build resilience.
