Health and wellbeing tips from our experts

Why you should ask RUOK? everyday

Asking someone if they’re OK should be a simple human interaction, but often fear of the answer stops people from asking. Before you ask if someone’s OK, you need to prepare yourself to manage the situation if the answer is no and know what to do next.

Fast asleep and dreaming of milk and cuddles! 💭💓 Baby Harriet was welcomed into the world on Monday 17 January by mum Caitlin and dad Dylan. They had her name picked out for five months before she was born and we think it’s perfect.

“Harriet is our second baby. Our son Ashton who is18 months old is waiting at home to meet his little sister, along with our two golden retrievers Ryan and Bronte,” said Caitlin.

“We can’t wait for Ashton to meet her. He loves looking after the babies at the creche he attends, so we know he will be the same with Harriet.

“She’s been such a good baby so far. She’s been sleeping all day but seems to love having a party at night!”

A big congratulations to Caitlin, Dylan and caring big brother Ashton. We wish you all the best. 🥰 #FeelgoodFriday

Cybil and Austin are straight out of university and into our #TPCH ED this week, as two of our 169 new junior doctors across Metro North. 🏥😄🩺

Both originally international students, who studied completely different undergraduate degrees before moving into medicine, Cybil and Austin have one additional thing in common – an eagerness to dive right into the deep end to help out people in need.

30 year-old Cybil studied journalism first before moving into medicine, admitting both career paths suit her inquisitive nature.

“I’ve always been fascinated by the human body and have wanted to make a difference in people’s lives,” she said.

Meanwhile 33 year-old Austin first studied economics before a trip to Greece where he shadowed a doctor on the island guided him towards his career interest in emergency medicine.

“I saw how this doctor responded to all kinds of medical issues on this tiny island, and my love of emergency was born here,” he said.

“I’m so happy to start in the ED – it’s unprecedented times at the moment but we’re just so happy to be here.”

Did you know that a person with a burn injury can expend up to twice the amount of energy of a healthy person? That’s why it is vital for burns patients to receive enough calories as they recover.

#RBWH are looking for a superstar research assistant to join the #RBWH Nutrition and Dietetic and Burns Multidisciplinary team to be part of an exciting new project. The research will investigate the use of smart devices to measure calories used in patients with burns. Just like Hannah who is a new graduate currently commencing her PhD in Nutrition and Dietetics, the successful applicant will ideally undertake their PhD as part of the role.

Sometimes it's the little things we do that keep us tackling the big things! ☺️ The COVID-19 pandemic continues to dominate most of our lives. Whether you've tested positive to COVID-19 and are recovering, isolating because you're a close contact, or limiting time with friends and family to keep loved ones safe, we all can all feel the effects on our wellbeing.

Save this post and refer back to it when you need to, for a reminder of a few things you can do to put your mind at ease about the pandemic and to stay positive, whether you're COVID-19 positive or not! ➕

"All you can do is stay positive and do what you can to make yourself happy. My wife and I bought a motor home and we do trips here and there. From inland bush to coastal beaches, getaways take our minds off things and we can relax. It always feels like a weight has been taken off our shoulders and helps us cope with reality."
