Queensland's geographical maldistribution of psychiatrists and Queensland Health's response.
There is a major geographical maldistribution and shortage of psychiatrists throughout Queensland.
In June 1992,48 psychiatrists worked outside of Brisbane where 66% of the population reside, while 172 psychiatrists worked in the metropolitan area.
The reasons for and the effects of the maldistribution are discussed.
Since 1991, Queensland Health has developed a number of key strategies to attract and retain psychiatrists in our non-metropolitan areas.
These strategies are outlined.
Between July 1992 and December 1993,14 new full time psychiatrists were recruited.
The results of these strategies are encouraging.
