RCPCH Conference and exhibition - sustaining a happy and healthy workforce

Sessions that shine a light on the importance of staff welfare and dealing with job pressures have been added to next year's programme.

As paediatricians continue to raise concerns about the toll that the job is taking on them and their team, it is important that we can come together to talk about the challenges facing front line clinical staff and explore solutions, with experts on hand.

Workshops include:

The cost of caring - Tuesday 14 May

Join Caroline Elton, renowned occupational psychologist specialising in helping doctors and author of the critically acclaimed book, Also Human for a workshop that will facilitate a discussion about the challenging clinical landscape children's healthcare now finds itself in, with the panoply of practical, ethical, moral and resource dilemmas and how we can overcome these challenges.

How burnout in doctors affects patient care and what we can do about it - Wednesday 15 May

Dr Judith Johnson, Clinical Psychologist, School of Psychology, University of Leeds, and the Bradford Institute for Health Research, will lead a session that explores how we can take care of ourselves, and others, to avoid burnout in what can often feel like an unrelenting role.

Keep an eye on the RCPCH programme as more sessions and speakers are announced.

The RCPCH Conference and exhibition returns to Birmingham from 13 to 15 May 2019 with a cutting edge programme of prominent speakers, insightful workshops and excellent networking opportunities.
