Quality patient care and doctors’ well-being go hand in hand. As healthcare practitioners, our duty is to look after the health of patients and the community, and we can do this well only if we are willing and able to look after ourselves and each other.
The Academy, assuming a leading role in the medical and dental profession, has promulgated a Well-being Charter committed to cultivating and promoting well-being of Academy Fellows and specialist trainees of Academy Colleges. We pledge to acknowledge the importance of well-being, to take actions, and to advocate policy changes for the improvement of our wellness.
A Task Force on Well-being, chaired by the Academy’s Honorary Secretary and composed of dedicated colleagues, has been set up to devise plans and effective promotion of different initiatives.
