About Queensland Doctors’ Health Programme
QDHP was established as the service arm of the Doctors’ Health in Queensland. DHQ is an organisation developed by doctors, led by doctors.
Our organisation receives support from dedicated volunteer doctors who answer our helpline and provide assistance to colleagues in need.
We recognise that medical practitioners may find it challenging accepting the role as a patient and many fail to seek help in a timely manner. Yet doctors experience the same wide range of health-related issues as others in the community, as well as conditions specifically related to the stresses of professional practice. We are dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of doctors and medical students in Queensland, understanding that this work benefits the community as a whole – improving the delivery of quality care and encouraging others to focus on positive health maintenance behaviours.
