In this conference, we will examine resilience and how it links to healthy boundaries and mental wellbeing in the healthcare professions.

The issue of what causes burnout will be examined in depth.

We will also gain insight into our own personalities and how having this knowledge enables us to develop a higher level of emotional intelligence which assists us with resilience and developing boundaries.

The content is vital knowledge for all of us as we face the unique challenges around us currently. Not only for our own self-development but also to have the knowledge and skills to provide support to our families and friends and colleagues.

Is this part of my Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

Yes, it is!

Under the code of conduct in Domain 7: Promote Health and Wellbeing,  the value statement that we, as Nurses and Midwives are required to abide by is:

“Nurses and Midwives promote health and wellbeing for people and their families, colleagues, the broader community and themselves in a way that addresses health inequality.”

This means that the information and education provided at this retreat is perfect to meet your obligations under this domain and thus claimable as a CPD activity.

Conference Program:

The education content provided in this program meets the same exacting standards as anything offered in an Australian land-based program.

No matter what Conference you attend, you always need accommodation. A cruise ship provides a fantastic all-inclusive accommodation option to enhance your Conference experience.

The Nurses for Nurses Network combines excellent education with fabulous travel adventures. We have taken a holistic approach to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to ensure you get the most out of your education-travel experience.

In the spirit of adult learning, the Conference is delivered in two formats. The live presentations are delivered in the Conference Room, and there is the online library which is open prior to the actual Conference dates. The library is an essential component of the entire Conference program.

The library consists of Conference material supplied by the Presenter/s which can include any of the following:

  • Research documents
  • Links to external information
  • Recorded Conference presentations
  • Electronic Notepads

The research documents and recorded Conference presentations form part of the Continuing Professional Development activities but are delivered to you before the commencement date so you can start your Conference Program early. If you choose not to undertake these activities before, there is a two-week window after the Conference where the library remains open to you. You can also undertake the library activities during the actual Conference.

Below is a snapshot of the Conference Program.
