The Way Forward – Views of Deadly Doctors

In November 2023, AH&MRC hosted its annual Deadly Doctors Forum. The Public Health team compiled a comprehensive report based on the valuable input gathered during the information-sharing session. This initiative aimed to equip Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs) with effective strategies to enhance their work environments for health professionals.

The forum highlighted that by addressing the professional needs of General Practitioners (GPs), ACCHOs can cultivate a stronger sense of purpose and pride among their medical staff. This, in turn, empowers GPs to better support the wellbeing of patients and the broader community.

The findings from this forum serve as a roadmap for ACCHOs to implement targeted improvements, ultimately strengthening their capacity to deliver high-quality healthcare services to Aboriginal communities.
