NMHPV Wellness Conference 2023
Over 450 nurses and midwives attended the 7th Nurse and Midwife Wellness Conference at MCEC on 28th April. The conference focused on hope, self-compassion, renewal and inspiration. Delegates met real people who shared their personal insights into confronting and working with life’s challenges, such as Lisa Curry and Zan Rowe. They also met experts Mary Freer, Moira Junge and Tetyana Rocks who encouraged them to turn their care inwards, focusing on promoting an individual’s health through self-reflection, sleep and nutrition. The event was opened by the inspirational Royal Melbourne Scrubs Choir and further inspiration was provided by English Channel swimmer and mental health advocate Brendan Cullen.
