Striking the Balance
Strike the balance is hosted by the Women in ICM subcommittee but is an event for all genders. This event has an excellent line up of talks and workshops covering a wide range of subjects, relating to the human side of intensive care medicine. We have speakers on 'Sexual Harassment in medicine" "returning to work" and "self growth". The event will provide an excellent basis to learn and think about some challenging areas which affect our working lives.
The day aims to highlight some of the less discussed and human sides of Intensive Care Medicine, whilst also providing nurture and inspiration to the attendees.
Key topics include self growth, lessons learnt from exploring the arctic, sexual harassment, returning to work after absence with workshops covering work life balance, leadership and wellness.
Previous Striking the Balance events have had excellent feedback and attendees have benefitted from development of areas not normally covered in educational events.
