Delivered by the Doctors Health Advisory Service, this event explores the key theme of doctors’ psychological health. Through case presentations and interactive discussion, participants will explore specific psychological health problems and challenges confronting medical professionals and colleagues, and discuss ways to respond to those problems.

This 'doctors only' afternoon will also explore the barriers to doctors seeking treatment and delve into the role of both the treating doctor and the doctor as patient.

Through learning how to respond to the psychological health challenges confronting medical practitioners, GPs will be healthier themselves and better able to effectively and safely treat patients and doctors in their care.

Learning outcomes:

  • Recognise psychological health challenges and problems in doctors
  • Respond confidently to psychological challenges and problems through early intervention
  • Take steps to improve personal psychological health and wellbeing
  • Develop strategies to help ensure the best outcome for both the doctor treating a doctor and the doctor as a patient
  • Identify the role of Doctors' Health Advisory Service and the support it offers 
  • Recognise the importance of having one's own GP
