Member Health and Wellbeing Strategic Plan 2023-2026

Our Member Health and Wellbeing Strategic Plan was developed by the Member Health and Wellbeing Committee with the vision that all RACP members flourish and achieve their full potential in all aspects of life.

The Plan is founded on 4 guiding principles:

  1. The wellbeing of members is essential in all stages of their careers and lives.
  2. The individual, our College, and practice environments have a collective responsibility for member wellbeing.
  3. Wellbeing must be embedded into all College activities and culture, and modelled by leadership.
  4. Our College will advocate for and enable evidence-based practices to promote wellbeing.

The Plan is organised into 4 focus areas, each with key priorities to guide the delivery of wellbeing initiatives for RACP members over the next 4 years.
