In 2016 the College approved the formation of the Welfare Special Interest Group. This group allows CICM Fellows with an interest in welfare to collaborate in developing College resources for the benefit of trainees and Fellows.
The objective and aims of the group were discussed and ratified at a meeting in October 2016.
To advocate for the welfare of all intensive care doctors in Australia and New Zealand encompassing physical, psychological and professional wellbeing across the working life cycle.
The Welfare Special Interest Group aims to promote the wellbeing of doctors in the specialty by:
Identifying and quantifying stressors in intensive care physicians’ lives
Fostering a culture of support, resilience, acceptance and openness within the profession
Developing guidelines and resources for welfare related issues
Encouraging the use and implementation of workplace support strategies
Advertising and promoting access to existing health agencies and resources
Expanding continuing medical education activities to include issues such as mental health, stress management and personal development
The group is Chaired by NZ Fellow, Debra Chalmers
