Restoring balance – avoiding compassion fatigue (6 hours)
Compassion fatigue occurs when care givers focus too much on looking after others whilst neglecting their own self‐care, creating chronic stress. Restoring balance connects 2 images – restoration is taking what is tired and worn, renewing and reviving it. Balance is about creating equilibrium, and emotional stability. The joint picture is a flourishing life of health, hope and purpose. The workshop has three sessions and is a practical and interactive workshop

Advanced Care Directive (CPD 3 hours)
This session will concentrate on how the information contained in a new SA Advance Care Directive form may apply to your practice whenever you see one.  It will also enable participants to begin to complete their own Advance Care Directives with opportunities for questions.  We don’t anticipate you completing your own Advance Care Directive on the day, but would hope that this session can alleviate concerns, fears, or misunderstandings around the new form.  There will be brief introductory information on the legislation behind the form but the focus for this session is on the actual use of the form from both a healthcare professional perspective and that of your own personal perspective.
