MINDFULNESS

by Edel Maex

When I was finishing my education as a psychiatrist, I came face to face with one big question: how to survive the daily confrontation with so much human pain, with sorrow, anxiety, traumas, loss…? I had to find a way to sail safely between two dangerous rocks. On one side there was the risk of being overwhelmed by all the pain and emotion and suffering a burnout myself. On the other side there was the danger of pushing away my own feelings and becoming emotionless, objective, unavailable, untouchable. 
The question contaned it’s own answer: to cultivate an open awarenes that finds a middle way between numbing and overwhelming. This quality of awareness is what we now call mindfulness. 
In this workshop we will start from a simple mindfulness exercise followed by a discussion on how this practice can help us become a better doctor. The workshop will be given by Edel Maex, a renowned Belgian psychiatrist.

DA VINCI ROBOT

at UZA hospital

The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical system that is designed to facilitate surgery using a minimal invasive approach which reduces complications and improves results. The robot is controlled by a surgeon from a console and has three interactive robotic arms. The da Vinci System has been used in different procedures such as radical prostatectomy, hysterectomy, transoral robotic surgery….
In this workshop you will visit the Antwerp University Hospital (UZA) and you will have the opportunity to see this robot up close. A surgeon expertised in robot surgery will provide a demonstration. Afterwards, you will even get the chance to control the robot yourself! Places are limited, so register quickly.

typical imaging patterns of different histopathologic tumor types, the diagnostic challenge of pulmonary nodules, strategies on how imaging can help save lives, future perspectives and the role of artificial intelligence in lung cancer imaging.

BURNOUT

dr. Lode Godderis

Mental problems do not only impact the health of doctors but also the health of patients and the sustainability of our health system. The prevention of burnout and other mental disorders is therefore important from the beginning and during every phase of the training of medical students, general practitioners (GPs) in training and residents.
In this keynote, you will get an overview of the prevalence, causes and prevention of burnout in medical students, GPs in training and residents. In addition, the participants also receive practical tips on how to protect yourself and colleagues you work with.
This lecture will be given by prof. dr. Lode Godderis. He is a Professor at the Centre for Environment and Health of the University of Leuven.
