Connecting with Compassion in Diverse and Complex Settings
Event Date: Tuesday 30th May 2023
Event Time: 9:30am-4:00pm
Location: Online and Nano Nagle Place, Cork T12 X7OA
The collaborators behind the Heart of Frontline Practice group – SHEP, Dr Maeve Hurley, Dr Nicola’ O Sullivan and Fern Higgins Atkinson – are hosting their fourth one-day, interactive national conference for frontline practitioners and managers.
This year’s hybrid seminar takes place in the tranquil surroundings of Nano Nagle Place in Cork. Places are also available online for those who can’t attend in person.
Aware of the ongoing pressures and stress of frontline roles, we invite you to take time out of your routine daily practice to reflect on the impact of your work.
Join us in a safe and facilitated, in-person or online space to pause and engage with topics such as creating a culture of inclusion, communication in professional relationships, and curiosity and compassion.
Through a series of stimulating presentations, interactive plenary sessions and facilitated break-out spaces, this event will focus on enabling practitioners from all disciplines to develop and sustain reflective practice.
This one-day event has been given CPD approval by the Royal College of Physicians Ireland (RCPI) and it will include interactive plenary sessions and facilitated break-out spaces.
The subsidised fee is €50 and tickets are available on Eventbrite or contact Robyn at firstname.lastname@example.org
