Wellbeing SIG

The aim of the Wellbeing SIG is to promote the personal and psychological wellbeing and to heighten awareness of wellbeing issues in anaesthetists and pain medicine specialists. The group is an informative, educative and referral group; it has no therapeutic role.

The Wellbeing SIG runs sessions at various annual meetings including the Combined SIG meeting, ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting and Australian Society of Anaesthetists Annual Scientific Congress. This provides an opportunity to share new research and data on Australian and New Zealand anaesthetists, discuss important and topical issues and to network with peers. In addition, members of the executive will often present at other wellbeing-related events and liaison with other professional bodies.
 

Wellbeing SIG resource documents

Please visit the Wellbeing SIG LibGuide to access the resource documents. In the Wellbeing SIG LibGuide you can also access a wide range of wellbeing resources, including COVID-19 wellbeing resources, the Peer Group Guide, ASA articles, journal articles, apps, publications, and podcasts.

The resource documents, developed by the Wellbeing SIG, provide brief comment, give references, and identify strategies for use in dealing with the more common professional and personal stresses. If you are a member of the SIG but not a FANZCA please contact the Senior Events Officer for access to these documents.

If you would like to create a resource document, please view the resource document submission guidelines.
