May 28 & October 8, 2016 (Saturday)
Due to the popularity and excellent feedback from the Mindfulness course held last year, we will be holding another Mindfulness course this year.
Mindfulness-based approaches have generated a great deal of clinical and research interest in recent years. Mindfulness is a generic skill involving training attention and attitude. It has a wide range of solutions to improving immunity, neuroplasticity, epigenetics, and enhanced clinical performance. This interactive workshop will explore the principles and application of mindfulness based practices for personal and professional use.
The Mindfulness course aims to increase awareness of the importance of stress and mental health problems and their effects on wellbeing, performance and leadership. It will also increase knowledge of the indications for and role of mindfulness in managing mental and physical illness.
The John Murtagh Update Course
November 2-4 2016 (Wednesday - Friday)
The update course is a celebration of what is best in clinical general practice learning and in an era of electronic clinical education offerings, it continues to be a mainstay in practising GPs’ educational calendars. It also provides an opportunity for GPs to network with their colleagues. The course is named in honour of Professor John Murtagh and his extraordinary contribution to Family Medicine. The 2015 Annual Update course is proudly convened by the Department of General Practice, Monash University, and will be held this year at the Rendezvous Hotel, 328 Flinders Street, Melbourne, 3000. Full program details will be available from Easter 2016. This will be the 38th year that the course has been offered.
