Welcome to Caring For Our Colleagues, a Doctors’ Health SA (DHSA)  on-line education module that aims to explore the physical and mental health of rural doctors and medical students, promote healthier lifestyles, prevent illness, increase awareness of warning signs for occupational related conditions such burnout, depression and drug use and explore strategies to manage stress.

The course offers a number of case studies, each of which explores different aspects of the health of doctors and more case studies are being added over time.  The case studies are peer-reviewed.

Course Fee: No cost.

Access: via log-in access and is currently restricted to doctors participating in the DHSA GP Network and GPs in the new Doctors Health NT GP network.

Doctors’ Health SA is a fully independent not-for-profit doctor-controlled organisation established in 2010 by the medical profession in SA to improve the health of doctors and medical students for the good of the community.

DHSA has received funding in FY16/17 from the Country SA PHN to support the program and the delivery of rural GP doctors’ health education.

DHSA also receives funds from the Medical Board of Australia, as part of its arms-length support for doctors’ health programs across Australia. DHSA is also supporting the establishment of the Northern Territory Doctors’ Health Program in 2017.
