As healthcare professionals, we are constantly required to meet the physical and emotional needs of our patients and their families. While this is an immensely rewarding career, one of the biggest challenges facing the profession of physiotherapy is burnout and compassion fatigue. Burnout affects the quality of care we provide and patient satisfaction. Work-related stress also affects our own physical and mental health, our relationships, and our personal lives. 

Optimizing our wellbeing will allow us to increase our capacity to help others and to sustain a fulfilling career. In this online course, we will discuss evidence-based strategies to optimize our wellbeing, from the fields of positive psychology and mind-body medicine.
