ACHSM Breakfast Forum - August 2014

We tend to ignore things we cannot see but we do this at our peril!  For instance, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is now recognised as a critical health issue by the World Health Organisation.  Primarily the concern of hospitals, resistant bacterial pathogens are now seen with increasing frequency in the community.

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has appointedProf John Turnidgeto lead a program for national surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance and antibiotic usage.

Mastering Difficult Colleague Interactions with Dr Mark O'Brien, Cognitive Institute

Rebecca Ward Consultingis proud to support theACHSMQld Branch (in association withCognitive Institute) in a one-day workshop focussing on enhancing the effectiveness and ease of dealing with difficult colleague interactions in healthcare. This workshop is designed for all who work in healthcare.

Difficult people and situations are often the biggest stressors for all who work in healthcare. However, there can be added pressure when difficult interactions occur with colleagues because of the need to often maintain a long term functional and professional relationship that goes beyond the particular issue being addressed in a challenging interaction.
