Well-being in Healthcare Education

Well-being in Healthcare Education - The Academy of Medical Educators' Spring Academic Meeting

 Heads purchased
Our annual one day conference takes place at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff on Thursday 4 April 2019.  Click here for venue, travel and accessibility details.
In 2012 the GMC produced guidelines for supporting medical students with mental health conditions. Since then the well-being of students, trainees and practitioners in all aspects of healthcare education has gained further recognition as contributing directly to retention of staff and quality of care. We know that fear of the consequences of disclosing mental ill-health exerts a massive effect on medical students’, junior doctors’ and other health professionals’ help-seeking behaviour. There is clearly a lot more to be learnt about what constitutes well-being in such an intense learning and working environment and how it can be achieved in over-stretched and under-resourced institutions. This conference seeks to bring together and debate established and new thinking around making our environments healthier and more supportive for everyone.
