By invitation of Germany, the HFM-302 Evidence-based Leader Interventions for Health and Wellness will be held in Berlin, Germany, from Tuesday 09th April 09:00 hrs to Wednesday 10th April 2019 17:00 hrs.
It has been more than a decade since NATO HFM examined leader strategies for addressing the health of their personnel (Military Leaders’ Strategies for Addressing Stress and Psychological Support). Since then, casualties of combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq have been the impetus toward a greater focus on health-related interventions. Current and recent HFM activities have examined health-related interventions, such as Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Optimized Nutrition, Suicide Prevention and Leadership Tools for Suicide Prevention to name a few. However, breakthroughs in the domains of leadership, organizational justice, motivation, work engagement, organizational commitment, workplace well-being, and job-related burnout, among others, have influenced models of health to include an increasing number of psychosocial factors. The result is a greater appreciation for a more holistic (or total) view of health and wellness in the workplace that has triggered action in public and private organizations, including the military.
The objective of this symposium is to bring together leading academics and military experts from a variety of health disciplines to consolidate current evidence-based leader interventions that support military personnel health and wellness from a holistic perspective in order to optimize individual and group functioning in operational and non-operational settings.
