The theme of this year’s Gertrude Berger Oration & Symposium held on the 14th of October 2021, is on Self Care for Nurses. It is a CPD event that focuses on the importance of self-care and wellbeing for nurses, particularly in the current climate where the COVID-19 pandemic has imposed additional stress and strain on healthcare workers. The three key learning objectives for participants: 1. Identify strategies that nurses can implement to maintain self-care in the prevention of compassion fatigue and burnout. 2. Discuss the impact that the nursing role can have on personal health and wellbeing, particularly with the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. 3. Assist nurses in recognising when they or their colleagues need additional support or time off to prevent burnout. Join us in this webinar where our panelist speakers will cover topics like mindfulness and nutrition.
