Safer Care Victoria: Wellbeing for healthcare workers

Safer Care Victoria: Wellbeing for healthcare workers

Safer Care Victoria is running a panel discussion focusing on the wellbeing of healthcare workers during the pandemic.

The panel conversation will cover the experience of healthcare workers throughout the pandemic and provide strategies to support wellbeing.  Wellbeing is not a one size fits all approach – what works for one person, may not work for another. This panel represents a broad range of professions and parts of the sector to encourage a diverse and engaging conversation.

Tom is President of the Australian Physiotherapy Association Victorian Council and committee member of the Physiotherapy Business Group. He is involved in working groups with Worksafe and TAC to develop effective return to work programs.

Alison Coughlan is a speaker, author, facilitator and coach who builds the capabilities of individuals and teams in the health and social sectors. Alison’s work is informed by almost 30 years’ experience working at state, national and global level as a researcher, policy maker, advocate, leader, consultant and board director.
