The theme of this year’s event is ‘Connecting with Compassion in Diverse and Complex Settings’ and each of the speakers will give their perspective on what lies at their heart of their work in frontline practice. They will share insight and experiences of how relating in a person-centred, compassionate way in work settings impacts positively on health and wellbeing outcomes for all.
