Doctors Take Fatigue Risk Survey

Fatigue Management trainingSeveral hundred doctors working in West Australia will document the amount of hours they work throughout the week  in order to ensure that it isn’t unsafe. This campaign to combat risks of fatigue occurs 5 years after another survey found that majority of the doctors were at risk of fatigue. Almost two-thirds of the doctors were considered “high risk” for fatigue.

The purpose of this year’s survey is to indicate if there has been any improvement over the last 5 years.The Australian Medical Association for WA stated that doctors with high levels of fatigue were more likely to commit a medical error, malpractice and, other accidents.

The doctors who volunteered to complete the survey will promptly receive a risk assessment pertaining to the hours they work. The AMA will discuss any safety concerns with their hospitals management.
