b'1.2 Self-ManagementThe College of Anaesthesiologists of Ireland is committed to supporting trainees wellbeing. The College advises trainees to monitor their physical and emotional wellbeing and to seek assistance at an early stage if they have any concerns about their health or feel they are experiencing significant stress. It is important for trainees to adhere to the medical advice and management plans of their doctors. Trainees should prioritise their own health and wellbeing so that they can in turn support the patients in their care.The Importance of General Practitioner (GP) Support:It is recommended that trainees register with a General Practitioner (GP) who is neither a friend nor a family member and who will ensure that professional boundaries are maintained in all decision making. Although doctors will have their own thoughts on diagnosis and appropriate interventions, trainees should bring an open mind to the consultation and just be a patient.Most GPs are very comfortable with treating doctors as patients and are registered on the Irish College of General Practitioners website.College Supports:For designated tutor within each Training Site, contact: Training@coa.ieDirectors of Training:Directorsoftraining@coa.ieTraining Department: Training@coa.ieExams Department:Exams@coa.ieCommittee of Anaesthesiology Trainees: CAT@coa.ieLead Anaesthesiology Trainee Coordinator: LAT@coa.ieHSE Supports:GeneralPractitionerList available on Irish College of General Practitioners websiteHSE Employee Assistance Programmehttps://www.hse.ieHSE Workplace Health and Wellbeing Unit:HR.wellbeing@hse.ieContact: Dr Lynda SissonPieta Househttps://www.pieta.ie/ call 1800 247 247Practitioner Healthhttps://practitionerhealth.ie/ call 01 297 0356Samaritanshttps://www.samaritans.org/?nation=ireland call 01 116 123Your Mental Healthwww.yourmentalhealth.ie Curriculum for the National Specialist Anaesthesiology Training Programme 119'
