  1. Queensland's geographical maldistribution of psychiatrists and Queensland Health's response.

    Article - En anglais

    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.
