Building Work Resilience - Sustaining Practice

GPEx are pleased to offer this single day training to assist the building of resilience and wellbeing within the medical workforce.

This training has been developed particularly for the medical workforce keeping in the mind the stressors and demands placed upon doctors as a consequence of the demands of their work and also their commitment, pride in their work, and often perfectionist nature.

The training is developed based on concepts of positive psychology and has elements of the work of Professor Martin Seligman, Dr Michelle McQuaid and Kathryn McEwen. The training incorporates the components of the R@W7 measure which is a measure of workplace resilience developed by Kathryn McEwen.


“Firstly we need to make sure we are looking after ourselves – that we have good work/non-work balance, that we take time off when we’re sick, have adequate holidays, nurture our relationships…”

Associate Professor, Dr Jill Benson AM, Medical Educator GPEx
