Title Physicians at risk. Some epidemiologic considerations of alcoholism, drug abuse, and suicide
Bibliographic information July 1984, Vol.26, No.7, p.503-508. 69 ref.
Abstract The epidemiologic evidence for a high occupational risk of alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide for physicians is discussed. A modern treatment facility dealing with the problem is described, and suggestions are made regarding the underlying issues and policies that face the administrators of training programmes and treatment centres. Self-help behaviour modification techniques are proposed to reduce these problems.
