Doctors' Health NSW and The University of Notre Dame Australia are researching doctors' experiences of loss. If you have been affected by the death of a doctor in an accident, unexpected medical events or suicide, you are invited to participate.
It is not uncommon for doctors to experience the sudden death of a medical colleague. This loss can be due to an accident, illness or suicide and can be distressing, whether the relationship is a close or a casual one.
Doctors' Health NSW is keen to ensure that doctors feel supported at these times. The research team would like to hear about your experiences so that we can improve the support available for doctors in the wake of a sudden death of a medical colleague.
You can choose to participate in two ways:
- via an online survey, and/or
- participate in a personal interview about your experiences and thoughts.
If you would like to do the interview and complete the survey you are welcome to do both.

The study has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee at The University of Notre Dame Australia (2023-083)
