RCPSG Event: Making Life Work Better

Date: 12th September 2019

Location: Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow


Emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation, vicarious trauma, and low sense of personal achievement are all factors which contribute to burnout, intent to leave, ill health and workplace error, not to mention the negative effects upon our personal and professional relationships.

Healthcare professionals increasingly reports such symptoms, and indeed, the GMC National Training Survey 2018, noted that 1 in 4 trainees, and 1 in 5 medical trainers reported features of burnout.

’Making Life Work Better’ aims to be an impactful and entertaining one day conference, which addresses areas where we can all make a difference to our own health and wellbeing in the workplace, and that of our colleagues.

It shall build upon the success of our 2018 event, with a focus on how fostering a ‘well’ workplace culture, has a direct effect on patient safety and quality of care.

It promises to be an impactful programme which leaves attendees inspired to make changes within their own organisations.
