Abstract

[Extract] The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare define 'on call' as "the number of hours in a week that a medical practitioner is required to be available to provide advice, respond to emergencies, etc"¹. According to the Australian Medical Association's Safe Hours Audit 20062, which was based on a survey of all doctors employed in public hospitals, in addition to their normal shift and overtime hours about one third of doctors were on call for one or two days per week and about one-fifth were on call for three or more days per week. It is also known that doctors outside the hospital invest many hours on call each week. So it is timely that an Australian version of well-known American title, On Call: Principles and Protocols,3 has finally been produced. The 1st Australian edition of Marshall and Ruedy's On Call: Principles and Protocols will no doubt establish itself as one of the leading reference manuals in Australasia for those who are embarking on their medical careers involving 'on call' in most cases.
