Planning for a fulfilling retirement just got a little simpler: Hundreds of retired physicians have shined a light on what makes them successful, satisfied and confident in this stage of life.

More than 1,200 retired physicians were surveyed for the “2018 Report on Retired Physicians” and shared what makes for a successful physician retirement. The report found that the majority of retired physicians—80 percent—have a satisfyin...

Financial planners have to fight 'lifestyle inflation' to keep well-paid clients on track.

More Americans are living beyond their means than ever before, including those pulling down six-figure paycheques. Household debt in the U.S. hit a record $13.3 trillion in the second quarter. Of those earning $150,000 or more, nearly 30 percent have less than $1,000 saved, a 2016 GoBankingRates survey found.

Increasingly, financial planne...

GPs and practice owners recently had the opportunity to submit questions to the Department of Human Services regarding Medicare. Here are the answers.

The conference was designed to help fill GPs’ nee...

In communities across Australia, the old guard of general practitioners (GPs) are retiring and it is unclear who will take their place.

These new vacancies can take years to fill and on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula, there are so many vacancies for GPs that the situation has become critical.

"The shortage of health professionals across the Eyre Peninsula is at crisis point now," Wudinna GP Scott Lewis said.

"We've had communit...

Cancer sufferers used to be told to avoid exercise and eat what they could stomach. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiography knock the body around and doctors didn't want their weakened patients doing fun runs or forcing down steamed fish.

Lina Pugliano believes they got it wrong. The Sydney oncologist is pioneering a new form of cancer care that starts in a fitness centre. Her fitness centre.

The idea's genesis came from her perso...

It was a relief when senior counsel assisting the royal commission, Rowena Orr, QC, called an end to the day's proceedings on Thursday afternoon.

This had been a harrowing afternoon, as witness Loraine van Eeden, the general manager of claims at insurer TAL who joined the company only in January, sat through a case study that went from ugly to abhorrent.

Orr took van Eeden through a case involving a nurse who bought income prote...

Dr Jason Kaplan is a leading Australian physician and cardiologist, an expert in heart health, longevity and sports cardiology. With a busy Sydney CBD practice and young family, he could be forgiven for not taking on extracurricular responsibilities. Yet for Kaplan, making time to teach is a way to pass on the wisdom of medical knowledge.

As Clinical Lead of the Cardiovascular program at Macquarie University, as well as clinica...

Given that self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs) enjoy substantial tax concessions, it comes as no surprise that the Australian Taxation Office wants to ensure trustees play by the rules and don't take advantage of the system.

Hence the existence of independent SMSF auditors, whose role is to check compliance and maintain the integrity of the SMSF sector through yearly audits.

From July 1, 2019, this will change for eligible...

The service has also stripped administrative costs to 7 per cent, far below the...

MOUNTAIN View Medical Centre in Mossman has been serving the local community for over thirty years, but in recent months a lot has changed. 

The modern accredited general practice surgery still upholds the traditional values on which it was founded, but has now transformed into a multidisciplinary team with a strong emphasis on allied and holistic healthcare.
 

Managing Director Louise Cooper said the new holistic health progr...

Key points:

  • HealthEngine has boasted to advertisers it can tailor advertising to patients' symptoms

  • The Australian startup says it only shares information with users' consent

  • But if a patient wants to use the app, there is no opportunity to opt-out of the fine print about giving information to third parties

Health Minister Greg Hunt has ordered an "urgent review" of Australia's biggest online doctor appointment...

Just like the rest of the population, doctors are vulnerable to the vagaries of ageing and now a new Australian study has provided strong evidence for their professional competence to be routinely tested from the age of 70.

This study, thought to be the largest of its kind in the world, has taken a hard look at where older doctors are falling short.

It looked at complaints made against all doctors across the country over a four-...

Key points:

  • In February, Government made regulations that tightened access to codeine

  • Low-dose codeine was previously available over the counter
