Episode 78: Are Regulators Barriers to Professionals Seeking Treatment?

CLEAR Podcast,

Gordon Giddings, Jeremy Beach, and Fisayo Aruleba share research they conducted to ask, "Do Medical Licensing Questions on Health Conditions Pose a Barrier to Physicians Seeking Treatment?" Their research focused on approaches to asking about physician health, sought evidence about whether those questions can act as a barrier to individuals seeking treatment, and explored how those barriers could be mitigated by asking questions in a different way so as to reduce the stigma. Hear some highlights from the studies they reviewed, conclusions they drew, and recommendations for finding a balance between ensuring safe care while not being an impediment to professionals' care-seeking.
