Course Overview

This Course acknowledges the importance of professional wellbeing and will provide practical tips to enhance your wellbeing at work, including how to recognise signs of burnout.

Topics include:

  • Work-Life balance
  • Professional burnout
  • Personal plan for professional wellbeing

Target audience

All healthcare professionals involved in providing health care, regardless of where that service is based.

Purpose

The purpose of the Course is to acknowledge the importance of professional wellbeing, and the impact that professional wellbeing can have on aspects of the care we provide to patients and our personal lives.

Need

Given that we as health professionals engage in work practices and environments that have an impact upon our health and mental wellbeing, there is a need to understand the concept of work-life balance and professional wellbeing.

Strategies to overcome some of these environmental, interpersonal and social challenges must be explored as work demands increase and links between stress, burnout and compassion fatigue become clearer.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the concept of work-life balance and how it is used to describe a state of health
  • List the signs and symptoms of professional burnout
  • Identify a personal plan to create and maintain professional wellbeing
