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.

 

I am interested in assessing Workplace Based Assessments for the trainees undertaking the Certificate of Women’s Health, Diploma and Diploma Advanced trainees. How can I formalize this process?

If you are approached by a trainee to participate in a Workplace Based Assessment you need to be approved by the trainee's Training Supervisor prior to undertaking the activity. For Diploma and Diploma Advanced trainees your qualifications must be equal to, or above, that of the trainee's current training program i.e., you must hold the Diploma or above to conduct the assessment for a candidate who is in the Diploma Training Program or hold the Diploma Advanced or above to conduct the assessment for a candidate who is in the Diploma Advanced Training Program. Only the designated Training Mentor can conduct Workplace Based Assessments for their Certificate of Women's Health trainees.

Training Supervisors will have a list of approved Assessors (and the qualification level at which they can conduct Workplace Based Assessments), which will be updated each calendar year.
