She has an extensive background in delivering medical education workshops to doctors. More recently she has been facilitating with Mr Glen Hancox, professional actor, coach and facilitator. Together they have developed #medcrucialconvos, a unique workshop that uses real life scenarios as a way of demonstrating key factors in effective communication, rather than just talking about it.

This workshop gives attendees the opportunity to practice how they would handle conversations regarding doctor's help seeking, delivering feedback, and how to best elicit risk when managing a doctor’s mental health issue. The scenarios are raw and controversial, and designed to stimulate valuable discussion and learning.

This is sure to be a dynamic and exciting conference to attend.
