Description

The health and welfare of doctors continues to be a priority for the Australian Medical Association (AMA). Many doctors and medical students continue to experience high levels of stress and distress in their workplace.

The tragic suicides of a number of doctors in training earlier this year has had a profound impact on the profession. These events have once again prompted the AMA to examine how we can better support doctors and medical students who are feeling stressed and burnt out and/or have a mental illness, and more specifically, how we can reduce the risk of suicide in the profession through early intervention and appropriate support mechanisms.

Research into suicidal behaviours has been conducted for decades with doctors being the subject of much research in this area. While research in this area is difficult with issues relating to the quality and volume of data, what is evident is that suicidal behaviours result from a complex interaction between personal, occupational and systemic factors. And despite the risk factors being known, this has not translated into widespread implementation of prevention or management strategies.
