M1: Be Well. Lead Well – The Victorian Wellbeing for Healthcare Workers Initiative

Sunday 24 July 2022 | 12:15-13:30

Format: Building Capability and Leadership
Stream: Workshop

The session will provide an overview of the wellbeing for healthcare care workers initiative which has been rolled out across 24 teams in a wide array of healthcare settings in Victoria, Australia. Participants will hear from local and international senior leaders about the IHI ‘Joy in Work framework’ and how it was applied at the local level. Success stories and lessons learned will be shared to ensure that participants can boost wellbeing and reduce burnout in their health service. The session will also support leaders around authentic leadership practices for improving wellbeing, whilst not experiencing burnout themselves.

After this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify ways to care for their own wellbeing, whilst caring for the wellbeing of their teams

  • Be aware of best practise evidence and examples for leading change in wellbeing

  • Understand the local experience of improving wellbeing and reducing burnout in healthcare workers
