Event description

Description

A Forum about Compassion held in the heart of Ballarat.

The healthcare system is generally characterised by high levels of stress, complexity and workload, and where the possibility for errors are many. Much of the time we are reacting from a fight/flight response.

Neuroscience is now helping us understand that if we consciously still our minds and calm our emotions, we can build the neural connections that allow us to better understand how we make decisions, and improve our perspective taking/engagement with others.

In healthcare compassion is fundamental to high-quality, high- performing systems and drives improvement in performance – better patient outcomes, better population health and better value for money.

Come along and hear from internationally recognised speakers in the field of compassion in healthcare and contribute to this important conversation about growing compassionate responses.

Speakers will include:

Marilyn Turkovich, Director of the Global Charter for Compassion

Mr Matthew Hadfield, Ballarat Health Services, Clinical Director Surgical Services

Dr Lynne Reeder, Lead Facilitator, Australian Compassion Council and Adjunct Research Fellow, FedUni

Mary Freer, Director Freerthinking and Member, Australian Compassion Council


We hope to see you there.

Please RSVP by 1st February 2018.
