This online conference aims to support doctors to create better working environments for themselves and their colleagues.

ICPH 2021 goes virtual

Monday 26 – Friday 30 April 2021

This time, due to the ongoing pandemic, they have decided that their conference will be an entirely online event, with an exciting schedule of presentations and interactive sessions to enable physicians across the globe to learn, connect and develop strategies and networks to support them.  The conference will include inspirational keynote presentations, themed presentation streams, interactive networking sessions and opportunities to connect with colleagues.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: COVID-19 UPDATE

In addition to the abstracts that have already been accepted, theyare launching a new and limited call for abstracts for short oral presentations (15 minutes) or posters with a focus on the following areas:

  • Effects of pandemic on physical and mental health of individual physicians and their teams
  • Innovations in physician health service development and provision in response to the pandemic
  • Reviewers will also consider relevance of the submission to the overall conference theme: a vision for humanity in medicine

Please note that they are unable to consider any additional work without a strong COVID-19 focus.

Hi everyone!

This webinar will describe the lessons learnt from 20 years of mental health research following disasters including the natural history of emotional challenges, risk factors and typical symptoms. We then apply the disaster model to the current pandemic. 

Other informative research includes recent Australia data on stress, burnout and compassion fatigue in healthcare workers. 

The second half of the webinar is a Q&A session around these topics, usually with a focus on maintaining resilience and decreasing stress.

Please do register and join!
