Does the conference have a specialist focus?

The conference welcomes and includes all topics, perspectives, knowledge and skills related to health challenges and ways to develop recovery and wellness. This cuts across all socioeconomic groups and cultural contexts.

There are 4 main tracks at this years conference:

Diabetes/Hypertension/Obesity cluster

Probably the most impactful set of healthcare challenges when it comes to impact on our health services, families lives, communities and economies. This cluster explores what can be done to improve outcomes of recovery and develop prevention

Substance/Behaviour Misuse/Addiction cluster

This cluster wreaks high profile damage to families and communities. Because there is a correlation with crime and anti-social behaviour these types of healthcare challenges get different kinds of headlines in our cultures. We focus on the challenges of developing multi modal pathways to initiating recovery, supporting families and how recovery driven community led partnerships with treatment services offer exciting prospects for the future.

Managing Recovery to Wellness for Organizations

This track explores the growing realization that employee recovery from ill to better health is foundational to organizational development objectives and in the private sector, shareholder value. It will share ideas and new thinking, from leveraging wellness programme to raise more boats to health as the core component of organizational leadership.

Professional Recovery to Wellness Coaching

This track explores the relationship of coaching to the development of recovery for individuals and within a wider systems context. It will look at the profession of coaching as a new engagement tool and strategy within previously defined no go areas of healthcare recovery and set that within the variety of coaching skillsets (business, executive, life). Topics include professional development, best practice, bridging to other therapeutic practices and the business case.

How it works

All materials created from the conference sessions, both the face to face and the online sessions are collated and placed in the IRWCC library where they are accessible as a mix of audio, video and downloadable written materials to all registered delegates.

Between the conference periods the IRWCC team will run a regular series of live webinars with some of the best leaders in the field to continue building our knowledge base of how we can increase our practice and effectiveness as coaches and healthcare practitioners.
