The Aim of the QDHP is:
- Prevention of difficulties
- Early identification of health issues
- Provision of advice
- Timely intervention where appropriate
- Assistance with arranging consultations with practitioners experienced in helping colleagues
What We Do:
We operate a 24/7 helpline to provide advice to medical practitioners and students facing difficulties. The advice is often in relation to stress and mental health difficulties, alcohol and substance problems, personal or financial crises.
We also provide health promotion and education about doctors’ health through our website with links to relevant resources.
Seminars and events are held throughout the year in conjunction with our partners; Australian Doctors’ Health Network (ADHN) and Australian Medical Association Queensland (AMAQ).
The QDHP is active in providing educational, support and advocacy activities. It supports research to improve the safety, security and well-being of health practitioners.
What We Don’t Do:
We don’t provide a service for members of the general public. We encourage community members in difficulty to seek help via the methods below.
