Being the doctor’s doctor - My experience of practitioner health and welfare

On-demand webinar

    Medical professionals can be burnt out, overworked and more prone to psychological distress, but when it comes to their own mental health, many fear the stigma of treatment. Dr Kym Jenkins, Consultant Psychiatrist, has a clinical and academic interest in the health and wellbeing of the medical profession spending 10 years as Medical Director of the Victorian Doctors’ Health Program. Dr Jenkins joins us to discuss her experiences of the journey practitioners’ traverse when faced with their own mental health problems, stress or issues such as substance abuse.

    Importantly, Dr Jenkins will canvass the fundamental preventative and mitigating measures that can be taken to minimise the fallout to lives and careers from such illnesses or disorders.
