We must take care of ourselves first in order to be at our best to help others. This webinar will explore the stressful nature of health service work within higher education, its impact on staff, and strategies to respond effectively. The presenter will examine some of the broader philosophical issues that contribute to this stress, consider the value of focusing on our personal needs and not just meeting our students’ needs, establishing boundaries, and learning how to create resilience within a health service context.
