TORONTO - The Canadian Medical Association is offering a special program to help doc­tors deal more positively with their health. The physician health profes­sional development program consists of four modules over two days, looking at such is­sues as health status, physician impairment, disruptive behav­iour, suicide prevention, creat­ing healthy workplaces and managing personal well-being. Course faculty members include Dr. Michael Kaufmann, the Ontario Medical Associa­tion's physician health program director; Dr. Michael Myers, a Vancouver-based psychiatrist and physician health special­ist; and Dr. Mamta Gautam, an Ottawa psychiatrist who limits her practice to physicians.


More information on having the course presented locally is available from Susan Yungblut of the CMA at susan.yungblut,
