Taking care of yourself! Encouraging self-care in theatre teams

Event details

Perioperative practitioners have worked tirelessly to rise to the challenges presented in recent years, and now continue to face the challenge of managing record-breaking waiting lists. Theatre work is challenging. You’re on your feet all day, mentally engaged and, at times, emotionally charged. This study day gives you an opportunity to focus on your own health and wellbeing as well as the welfare of your patients. "If we look after ourselves, we can look after others!"

Topics will include:

  • Review of mental health wellbeing and how to optimise it
  • Health diet and fluid intake
  • The benefits of exercise
  • Optional Tai Chi taster session
  • The importance of sleep and rest
  • Debriefing and feedback to prevent burnout and PTSD
  • Menopause awareness
  • Open debate: Achieving a work-life balance in a demanding perioperative role
