Doctors' Health e-book
MIGA have produced a Doctors' Health e-book to provide assistance and education to practitioners. This online health resource specifically addresses: why doctors avoid the doctor; how unwell doctors behave; the impairment progression; professional strategies to well-being; and resources currently available to assist practitioners. A Risk Management program has also been introduced alongside the e-book, with a Workshop titled ‘Caring for our Colleagues’, which explores the benefits of staying well, recognising the warning signs in colleagues who may not be coping and discussing strategies for offering genuine professional support.
