Hybrid Conference: Book to attend either in-person or access the main stream virtually

NHS Practitioner Health in association with the Workforce Specialist Service in Scotland and the Canopi service in Wales, are pleased to announce the International Practitioner Health Summit 2024 which will focus on a new hope for workforce wellbeing and solutions for the future.

We are aware that the last few years have created intolerable pressures on staff, but also that many people have been focused on interventions and support to make a difference to the work experience of those in health and care settings. This two day CPD certified conference will focus on a new hope for workforce wellbeing and solutions for the future. We will be joined by a range of speakers and organisations who understand the challenges and impact of poor mental health and have been at the forefront of identifying and making changes to improve their own or the wider workforce wellbeing.

Open to all healthcare professionals, this hybrid CPD certified conference will welcome delegates from across the world attending face to face and remotely. 

Our chosen charity, Doctors in Distress, is supporting the conference this year with two creative workshops. They are also providing wellness massages that will be open throughout both days delivered by the Community Massage Project free of charge (donations welcome). There will be a Doctors in Distress raffle during the NHS Practitioner Health drinks reception at the end of day 1.

The clinical innovation and research stream will focus on the following areas:

  • Doing things differently – how changing the way we work can affect mental wellbeing

  • Creating space for life and joy at work – how interests outside of medicine can benefit wellbeing at work

  • Navigating adversity – creating time and space to debrief, reflect and share experiences

  • Making a difference - interventions and outcomes that have impacted workforce wellbeing

  • Addictions – long term support and relapse prevention.

  • Embracing Neurodiversity. 

  • Suicide support and pathways to recovery

  • Fit for the future – supporting and equipping clinicians through training and early years of work. 

  • Wit & Wisdom of clinicians in their late career path
