For over two years now, caregivers have been under more pressure than ever. Against the stark backdrop of the pandemic, the many challenges facing the healthcare system have had considerable repercussions on the health and well-being of healthcare workers. At the QPHP, this impact led to a 28% increase in requests for assistance between June 2020 and May 2021, after which the trend upward continued.
In a situation such as this, taking care of caregivers is essential. Quebec physicians are fortunate to be able to count on their health program, the QPHP. Created by physicians for physicians, the QPHP is a confidential, independent assistance service. By directly supporting teams and individuals in distress, the QPHP provides personalized assistance grounded in physicians’ experiences, so that they can regain their health, keep their balance and function optimally as professionals in a sustainable manner.
Results and impact
Our recent campaign, “While you care for Québec, who takes care of you?’, raised $115,000 from members of the medical community. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our generous donors.
As need increases, you are giving us the ability to be there, 365 days a year, for the physicians who need us. Physicians still face many obstacles to consultation, so our priority is to keep our services free and accessible. This year, your donations contributed to bolstering our frontlines by hiring and training new physician advisors and resuming our prevention activities.
On behalf of the whole community, thank you!
