19th Austrian Conference on Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Care Institutions

The 19th Austrian Conference on Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Care Institutions and 8th Austrian Conference on Smoke-free Health Care Institutions took place in Innsbruck from 18-19 September 2014. 

The main focus was: “Harmonizing Work – Family – Leisure:  How can one support the right balance?”

As RNI is now officially an associated member of the Austrian Network of Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Care Institutions (ÖNGKG), Dr. Marianne Obi, Head of Scientific Research, represented the RED NOSES group during the conference.

In her presentation entitled “Laughter:  a strategy for stress management within the hospital environment,” she portrayed the work of RED NOSES and how the organisation not only supports the patient’s individual stress coping strategies, but also those of family members and even the medical staff within the healthcare environment. Our professional artists use humour as a tool to spread an atmosphere of positive feelings which provides a psychosocial support factor for all who encounter them, fostering general well-being.

Marianne also accompanied RED NOSES clowns Claus (Bernd Fankhauser) and Emil (Wolfgang Viertl) from the team in Innsbruck as they went on a regular clown round through the Children’s Department of the University Clinic.
