A new way to access support - CRANAcast: Supporting your Wellbeing
Kristy Hill, Manager Education and Resources Mental Health and Wellbeing Services at CRANAplus, introduces CRANAcast: Supporting your Wellbeing – a new free podcast designed to support the mental health and wellbeing of the rural and remote health workforce.
CRANAplus is excited to announce the release of a second podcast channel for you to tune into. This new podcast provides mental health and wellbeing support to the rural and remote workforce.
In each episode, an experienced psychologist or mental health professional joins host Drew Radford to deep dive into a new topic, sharing coping strategies and wellbeing advice to help you manage the challenges faced as a rural and remote health worker.
In our first episode, we embark on ‘Navigating Workplace Conflict: What is it? and how do you prevent and manage it?’
The origins of workplace conflict may often be traced back to the simplest of misunderstandings. Working in smaller teams may amplify the experience of facing these inevitable conflicts.
Dr Nicole Jeffery-Dawes, Senior Psychologist with the CRANAplus Bush Support Line joins Drew to discuss three common types of workplace misunderstandings: those based on relationships, values and interests.
Nicole explains the differences between each type, discusses the role of self-reflection and honest conversations, and provides actionable ways to prevent and manage a workplace conflict.
Our second podcast, released in October, explores ‘Forming a Healthy Sleep Routine’ a wellbeing issue commonly faced by many rural and remote health workers.
In this episode, Cath Walker, a psychologist with over 30 years of rural and remote experience, discusses why sleep is important; the common causes of poor sleep; the short and long-term effects of poor sleep; and most importantly, practical strategies to support a better night’s sleep.
CRANAcast is designed for you to listen to on the plane, in the car between clinics, or during your downtime. Download it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or your favourite podcast app so you can tune in even when you’re out of range. Each podcast is also accompanied by a written resource.
