LC4HC is a forum where health professionals meet to share  experiences, learning, knowledge and ideas about self-care strategies. At the last forum, many asked for more time to hear from peers and share stories, so this time we’ve lined-up some stand-out health professionals from both public and private sector, who’ll share their experiences of change.

Conversation tables will run again with some focused time on participant-suggested themes and concurrent mini-workshop sessions on Preparing for Change, Mindfulness and Resilience Strategies  to select from on the day. Last forum, I explored the role compassion plays in stress-relief and self-care – download our FactFile on this topic to review this presentation.

Register on-line at – your NOT-for-PROFIT contribution $79 + GST covers lunch, refreshments, venue hire and materials.

For those wanting more on these topics, pre-forum short workshops on mindfulness and resilience are being offered by Jane and Dean on Feb 14.  I’ll be running a number of more in-depth, full-day coaching clinics on change, mindfulness, EI and compassion in healthcare during March, as summarised below…
