2 The 2013 JMO Census A comprehensive survey of Junior Medical Officers in NSW and the ACT, investigating the state of JMO welfare, education and training in our public hospitals. Domains of Enquiry 1.     Demographics 2.     Health and Welfare 3.     Supervision 4.     Education 5.     Career Development 6.     Hospital Systems


4 The 2012 JMO Census Pilot A comprehensive survey of Junior Medical Officers in NSW and the ACT, investigating the state of JMO welfare, education and training in our public hospitals. Goals 1.     Expand the evidence base on the state of JMOs 2. Develop a tool for multifactorial data analysis by interested parties 3. Gain buy in from parties who wish to survey JMOs 4. Encourage collaboration and information sharing between stakeholders Reduce survey fatigue Deliver a statewide census based on pilot survey results and feedback from stakeholders

5 Pilot Study Survey Design and Delivery
43 questions comprising 124 parts Including the Kessler-10 measure of psychological distress Predominantly LIKERT scales Questions related to current term Paper based Pilot delivered in October 2012, Week 8 of Term 4 10 candidates randomly selected in each of the 16 hospital networks in NSW/ACT HETI JMO Forum representatives delivered survey to participants Surveys mailed to HETI, data de-identified Design and delivery of pilot study

13 Rostered Hours

14 Unrostered Hours Worked Unrostered Hours Claimed
Whilst only 9% of respondents work no unrostered hours (lucky them!) 31% of respondents don’t claim unrostered time (assuming that 22% of respondents work it, but don’t claim it). In addition to this, 25% of respondents work an estimated 6-10 hours of unrostered overtime per week, but approximately half of those people don’t claim those hours.

15 Kessler Psychological Distress Scale
K10 Total Score Levels Low Moderate High Very high ABS K10 score groupings and categorisation Low: 57% Moderate: 37% High 8.5% Very high 3.5%

16 Health and Welfare Only 59% of respondents have a GP of their own!

18 Future Practice City Practice
84% of respondents indicate they are interested in working in a metro location in the future

19 Future Practice Rural Practice
However, only 16% of respondents had ruled out working rurally at the time of the census

20 Future Practice Remote Practice
But most respondents (58%) appear to have ruled out remote medicine as a future interest

21 80% of the pilot group felt their current hospital was an enjoyable place to work, and 80% would recommend their current hospital! Only 1% strongly disagreeing with the above statements

22 Given the Choice Again, Would You Not Study Medicine?
Most applicants agreed that, given their time again, they would have still studied medicine Thankfully, none of our applicants strongly agreed that they wouldn’t have studied medicine again 77% disagree/strongly disagree 3.5% agree 15.5% not sure

23 Training = Doctor 28% of respondents were unsure, or disagreed, that their medical student training prepared them for internship

24 Key Figures in the Hospital
92% of respondents knew who their JMO manager was 86% knew who their DPET was at the time of census However, only 74% of respondents were aware of hospital committees for JMO education and training Meaning that 15% of JMOs may not be aware that their are committees to deal with issues within the hospital

25 Concerns in the Hospital
Of the pilot group, 73% believed they knew how to raise concerns, however only 60% of respondents agree or strongly agree that they would be comfortable raising concerns Very few respondents (17%) felt they knew how to raise an industrial dispute, and a similar amount (20%) would feel comfortable to do so In addition, 23% of respondents had experienced workplace bullying in the last year Would those being bullied be able to raise that with their seniors?

27 Representation Only 6% indicated that they were a member of the Health Services Union However, 51% believed they were a member of the AMA 90% had a member of a MIO 12% were unsure; this may be due to people not being aware of what the health services union is, or because they signed up to that many things in their orientation week...

28 Next Steps Rollout of Census statewide Return datasets to stakeholders
Deliver Census annually Aim for national rollout in 2014 Publication of summary document and data online



31 Issues Identified Privacy Safety Responsible use of data
Who will benefit?
