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.
These committees are administrative bodies which represent the College in New Zealand and in each Australian State. Each Committee holds regular meetings throughout the year and, on occasion, regional scientific meetings.
These RANZCOG TA Committees, covering New Zealand and Australian States and Territories, are responsible for the appointment of Program Co-ordinators and Training Supervisors in the RANZCOG Integrated Training Program (ITP).
The Chairs of these committees are also responsible for reviewing and signing the prospective approval, mid-semester and six-monthly training documentation of Trainees in the relevant State, Territory or country, and overseeing their progress.
For information or to contact your Regional or NZ Committee, please contact the Executive Officer in New Zealand or your State.
A full list of the Executive Officers, Office Bearers and members of the New Zealand and all Regional Committees is available on the website.
