Helping doctors return to work
Doctors may take time out from clinical practice for several reasons including parental leave, sickness, burnout, career breaks, to conduct research or to seek out additional clinical experience or training.
The purpose of this toolkit is to:
- Provide information and practical guidance on preparing to return to work after a period of absence
- Provide information to Supervisors on supporting doctors to make a safe transition back to clinical work
- Provide guidance on the ideal framework for supporting all doctors planning and returning from an absence from work
- Provide a template for setting up a local ‘Return to Work’ course
