Self-care for psychiatrists

Course Overview

The three online learning modules in this course are designed to provide rural and remote psychiatrists with an interactive learning experience to both learn about and practice self-care.

Each module contains information, activities and resources to assist you to look after yourself – physically, mentally and emotionally.

These modules have been funded by the Australian Government and reflect the experience in Australia; however they may also be useful for psychiatrists or trainees working in metropolitan Australia or those working in New Zealand. Read more.

E-dgy Issues Program

Course Overview

In 2014 and 2015, RACMA delivered eight e-debates and discussions to doctors, based on contemporary and ‘edgy issues’ that were current to health services, medical and clinical administration. Some of this content may now be out of date, however the topics remain relevant across regional, rural and remote Australia.

The EIP was delivered online via a Learning Management System in a webinar format, and videos of the sessions are available here. The program provided doctors in medical and clinical management positions in rural and remote areas opportunities to enhance their CPD and sustain best practices in medical leadership and management. The EIP also reduced the impact of professional isolation.

Each video runs for 1 to 1.5 hours and comprises a presentation, debate, and discussion between the presenter and other participants.
