What is the Queensland Doctors’ Health Programme?
QDHP is an organisation established by Doctors’ Health in Queensland to assist colleagues who may be in difficulty. Our aim is to support doctors and medical students in Queensland to achieve optimal health and well-being throughout their careers.
Improving doctors’ health has benefits for the doctors themselves, their patients and the health care teams they work with. We understand the stressors of professional practice and the complexities of navigating training. Our service provides a helpline for advice and support plus education to improve understanding of doctors health and how to care for doctors as patients. We strongly advocate for physicians’ health and regularly collaborate with other organisations to support their work in the field of doctors’ health.
DRS4DRS has been developed by the medical profession for the medical profession. Through their network of doctors’ health advisory and referral services, they offer an independent, safe, supportive and confidential service. DRS4DRS promotes the health and wellbeing of doctors and medical students across Australia. They’re here to help you find the support you need – online resources, education modules, referral services and importantly for wellbeing, help you find a GP. DrHS distributes the funding for doctors’ health services and if you would prefer to speak with a EAP service for counselling you can access the Converge International/DrHS line via the link below.
