A conference that is current and relevant for all frontline responders, peer supporters, trauma practitioners, leaders, HR and Health and Safety Managers and a range of other support personnel.

Theme

A positive work environment drives productivity and a positive culture lends itself to an engaged and mentally healthy workforce.

In times of uncertainty and continual change, individuals, managers, teams and entire organisations need effective and robust strategies to support and sustain their people for best outcomes. Community leaders are key advocates for securing psycho-social safety and they too benefit from support and guidance on what helps and hinders crisis response.

We know the risks for those impacted by critical Incidents and cumulative stressors don’t just happen in the workplace, they also impact on the personal as well as the community.

It is important to remember that transition and change is a process and everyone reacts and progresses through it at their own rate. Nevertheless workplaces need to be aware of wellbeing options at a systems level. Appropriate interventions are crucial in preparing and resourcing our people for the vital work they do and to sustain them in their personal life as well. Critical factors in handling the effect of change include predictability, controllability and personal power. Having programs and resources well embedded is vital for proactive risk management including professional and peer support of employees.

The conference is relevant for all frontline responders, peer supporters, trauma practitioners, leaders, HR and Health and Safety Managers and a range of other support personnel. It seeks to provide our delegates’ with learnings from multiple speakers that will enable us to better prepare, engage and respond to these crisis challenges and to recover.

We hope it will unite professionals working within the world of trauma and allow them to meet, liaise and share their experiences from other regions and countries such as our New Zealand CIMA Counterparts.

The broad aims of the conference are to:

  • CIMA promotes best practice at this forum through endorsing innovations in preparedness for crisis and continual improvement systems.

  • Explore options of collaborative support for those transitioning through change.

  • Encourage interaction between employees, first responders, peer supporters, clinicians, leaders, and workplace wellbeing practitioners from HR & OH&S.

  • Inspire sharing of experiences and innovation from other regions and countries in supporting frontline workers and building a peer practice network.

  • Provide opportunities for researchers in proven and sustainable measures of post crisis support.
