9:30 - 10:00 A Day in the Life of an OHN
An energetic presentation sharing a personal account of a day in the life of an OHN, encouraging the audience to reflect on their journey and find the passion and gift in occupational health nursing. This presentation will aim to unite us: our trials and tribulations and ignite/reignite our day-to-day practice. It will focus on connecting our personal “why” to the privilege and gift we each have to make a difference to our organizations and clients. This 30-minute presentation will pack a memorable punch, filled with inspiration, connection and humour.
