146205 - Addressing doctors' health in general practice

  • : Online

 

This activity focuses on the significant risk for stress, burnout and suicide faced by general practitioners (GPs), highlights the warning signs of distress and burn out and discusses the principles of self-care, care of colleagues, effective preventive strategies and available support services to GPs. 

Tempo activities are designed as quick activities (when both the Overview and Interactive activity are completed) but recognise the additional effort GPs undertake when utilising the supplemental resources provided. Hence, this activity has been approved by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Quality Improvement and Continuing Professional Development (QI&CPD) Program for 2 Category 2 point in the 2017-2019 triennium.

Relevance to General Practice
