Dr Maeve Hurley, our founder and CEO, was invited to speak at the Royal College of Physicians’ annual St Luke’s Symposium in Dublin on Friday 19th October.
Under the title, ‘Attuned and Present -The value of adopting a relational approach in practice’, she shared insight into how practitioners can establish boundaries, manage time and attend to their own wellbeing, while learning to listen actively and reflectively. Her presentation, which is part of a series of Advanced Masterclasses, covered how to empathise, relate and respond appropriately via Ag Eisteacht’s ABLE training model – Adopt a relational approach, Build, Listen and Empower.
Dr Maeve Hurley, said: “It’s a great honour to have been asked by the RCPI to deliver this presentation. At Ag Eisteacht we aspire to an Ireland where all frontline workers are empowered to respond in a sensitive and focused manner when someone turns to them for support.
“This is a very welcome opportunity to address an audience of healthcare professionals and to highlight the benefits of a quality doctor/patient relationship as a key component of patient health and wellbeing.”
