Wellbeing, Mindfulness and Professional Skills Stream

Thursday 15 September 2022

Chair Person: Petra Agthe

09.20-10.30 Workshop: Mindfulness for busy Radiologists - Petra Agthe
Ticketed (30 people)

Mindfulness is sometimes seen as a fluffy / new age concept without relation to the daily life of most people, although there is now a strong body of evidence demonstrating its benefits such as improved wellbeing, increased attention control and executive function, as well as higher self-awareness and emotion regulation.

This workshop is for both people who are unfamiliar with mindfulness practice and / or are sceptic about its potential, and already ‘converted’ mindfulness practitioners. Petra will lead this session, which will provide an introduction into mindfulness including some simple practical exercises. There will also be the opportunity to share experiences and discuss potential applications in imaging practice, which may help you to better concentrate on your job as radiologist, enjoy it more and see your job from a healthy perspective. No previous knowledge is assumed and all levels of experience are welcome!

12.00-13.00 Yoga Class – Gentle Yoga - Elle O’Donnell

This is a gentle and steady paced class suitable for absolute beginners, experienced yoga students or anybody who wants to slow down and relax. We will focus on simple movement to encourage more body awareness and physical mobility, as well as look at the other fundamental aspects of yoga such as breath and meditation. This class offers an inclusive, laid back and fun atmosphere.

Yoga mats will be provided. The class will start at 12.00 but entry will be open as of 11.45. Changing rooms will be available but they are only accessible during the breaks, so please use the changing room in the morning coffee break 10.30 – 11.00 and lunch break 13.00 – 14.00 before and after the class.

14.50-16.00 Workshop: Empathy-Focussed Radiology Reporting – Tobias Schwarz
Ticketed (30 people)

The most important skill of a radiologist in the very near future, will be to put imaging findings into context with the patient history and clinical signs and to listen to and communicate with the referring veterinarian effectively. In other words, to fine tune our emotional intelligence. In this workshop Tobias will explore with practical exercises how we can structure a report to make it factually accurate, meaningful, and rewarding to your customer at the same time. This is a writing exercise, please bring your laptop if you prefer this for writing.

16.30-18.00 Professional Forum 
Not ticketed 

In this new type of event for EVDI, we have a debating club with audience participation about hot topics in our profession. We are aiming relaxed pub atmosphere; you are welcome to bring in your drinks!  We will debate 3 topics for 30min each with one or two selected speakers on each side of the argument, followed audience participation.  The audience will vote on the issue before and after the debate speakers.  The topics will be:
