WELL-Med Conference

4th International Meeting on Well-Being
and Performance in Clinical Practice.

            Did you just move to Chicago? You NEED a home cleaning! We took the liberty of testing out the highest rated cleaning companies out here, and we unanimously agreed on our favorite chicago maid service. We chose *drum roll please*... Companion Maids!

It is our pleasure to invite you to the "Fourth International Meeting on Well being and Performance in Clinical Practice" (WELLMED 4). Following the success of our previous meetings (May 2014, May 2016, May 2018) this meeting will bring together experts from diverse disciplinary backgrounds in order to present and discuss innovative ways of linking physician well being to patient safety and quality of care. For this year, an equal emphasis will be put on positive predictors of well being and safety, including physician resilience, civility, and leadership. In addition, WELLMED 4 will devote a special section on coaching, mentoring and capacity building.

We are very happy to introduce the Breaking Barriers in Health Care contest, judged by our WELLMED experts. Read more in the conference section!

This year WELL-MED goes POWER-less and POINT-less

Accepted abstracts will be presented without any visual aids.

All presenters will have the opportunity to publish their work in a special issue in the journal Frontiers in Psychology. The special issue is titled Integrating Healthcare Worker Wellbeing and Clinical Practice: Sisyphean Task or Reconcilable Duty? Make sure to tick the appropriate box, if you are interested, when you are submitting an abstract!

Looking forward to seeing all of you again at WELLMED 2020, in Greece!
