You can view the International Physician Health Conference webcast (first 25 minutes) of Drs Alastair Dobbin and Chris Manning presenting on Resilience Training for FY1/2 NHS Doctors and Action for NHS Wellbeing at: . We also had a poster about the training that Alastair will be delivering to these doctors, starting in the next few weeks.
There is a lot of useful information available on the BMA Conference website in terms of specific research and development programmes – so please do spend time there looking at it. The closing conference presentation by Prof Jim Lucey was especially erudite and memorable (timed at 1hr 52min on the webcast)
We met up with colleagues from America, Canada, US, Oceania and UK (including Scotland!) and made many new friends. Chris suggested that there should be an International Physician Health website to enable mutual support and the sharing of ideas, thinking and positive and promising practice in between conferences; this would also assist the various National Associations for Physician Health and in securing research and development funding.
