Date: Thursday 31 August  2017
Time: 07:00-07:50
Chair: Professor David Gillatt

As part of this year’s 18th Asia-Pacific Prostate Cancer Conference, we are pleased to present our popular Clinical Urology breakfast session featuring Dr Ben Challacombe, Urologist at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London, UK. Ben is one of the best known characters in European urology circles and understands the local scene well having done his Fellowship in Melbourne. We have given him the red-eye slot on Thursday morning at APCC 2017 in the knowledge that he will get the day off to a great start with his various observations on urology and much besides.

Nursing & Allied Health Breakfast Session

Work / Family Balance – how to achieve the perfect equilibrium

Date: Thursday 31st August 2017
Time: 07:00 – 07:55

Chair : Ms Debra Ward

Come along and hear Dr Michael Carr-Gregg whilst enjoying a sit down breakfast with colleagues.

The latest research tells us that Australia is at its highest suicide rate in 13 years, and the largest national stress survey carried out last year reveals the highest levels of stress ever recorded. More worryingly, it seems that the steps Australians take to reduce stress are doomed to failure. So how can we get a work–life balance? This presentation outlines the latest information from the science of wellbeing to give simple practical steps which have an evidence base. So if you want help in prioritizing between “work” and “lifestyle” this is unmissable!
