Despite how rewarding and fulfilling their work can be, Remote Health Professionals often work in geographical, professional, and social isolation as well as in cross-cultural contexts. Stress and burnout can be serious problems that impact on the recruitment and retention of a stable, competent and confident workforce.

The Centre for Remote Health’s short course Looking after #1: Resilient Self-Care for Remote Health Professionals addresses unique challenges faced by health professionals working in remote settings. The half day workshop, developed and facilitated by clinical psychologist, Professor Tim Carey provides participants with opportunities to learn about and develop a plan for robust and sustainable self-care.
