About this course

What you do for your customers can change their lives. Improving someone’s health, vitality, fertility and any of the many other gifts that you provide is irreplaceably valuable to them. Often though, this comes at a cost to the clinician. Practitioner burnout is often an unfortunate reality of medical care.

Burnout is not obvious. We all feel challenged and fatigued at times, but is it burnout? When it is, the consequences can be substantial. A clinician experiencing burnout infrequently recognises it while their mood, energy, motivation and decision making falls markedly. With the alarming rates of practitioner burnout and the modern challenges you are facing, we all need to be more conscious of the causes and signs of burnout. And also, what to do if we have experienced it.

This valuable series of live webinars tackles the critical issue of burnout and gives you real skills to prevent burnout, be able to recognise when it is occurring and gives you the tools and techniques for recovery. Each of your three presenters are highly experienced practitioners and very passionate about helping you maintain a robust and resilient soul and practice. They will give you lots of practical, actionable advice on how to maintain a healthier practice and be a resilient clinician.
