Good time management, the ability to make flexible plans that allow researchers to deal with uncertainty, and an understanding of how to establish a healthy work - life balance are all protective strategies against burnout, stress, and overwhelm. This workshop will introduce these themes and provide practical support for participants to implement them into their own working practices.
