Bouncing Forward: Mental Wealth for All

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


This session will explore the role of the community in ensuring the wellbeing of all within it. The community within any educational setting includes
the learner, the educator, the (intended) outcomes and importantly the
environment. Jo will explore aspects of each in her role as Dean of students
that allows the community to flourish.
Our philosophy at Bond University and within faculty is to ensure each student
has a personalised experience and thrive. Jo’s research focus is specifically in
the area of student (and staff) well-being and its alignment within curricula
using empirical evidence. Jo has coordinated the recent review of mental health and well-being within the University as the chair
of the promoting well-being working group. The group contributes to the work of the Student Wellbeing and Safety Advisory
Committee that reports directly to the VC. Jo contributed to the publication of the Medical student wellbeing – a consensus
statement from Australia and New Zealand in 2019 and led the writing of the Learner Wellbeing chapter in the Understanding
Medical Education; Evidence, Theory and Practice textbook.
