Join Doctors Drum for a spirited discussion with the three additional panel members and audience asking questions of our two keynote speakers and also debating the topic between themselves. Complimentary breakfast provided.
Topic: 'Workplace Culture - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly?'
Medicine is a hard gig and doctors have to shoulder heavy decisions with enormous consequences.
But has the adage of ‘when the going gets tough, the tough get going’ outlived its use-by date?
Is there any place any where for behaviour that belittles and harasses co-workers?
Is it time for a #metoo campaign in medicine?
At this 14th Doctors Drum, two key note speakers will offer their views on the topic followed by question time, with the panel of three and audience members, directing the outcome of the morning.
Come along and have your say, meet up with colleagues, or just sit back, listen and enjoy the discussion and breakfast.
Easy access and parking.
