MMA president Dr Koh Kar Chai says he cannot deny that some cases of bullying within the medical fraternity have not been resolved satisfactorily and therefore an independent body will be useful in such cases. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, May 7, 2022.

THE independent task force by the Health Ministry (MOH) should not only investigate the recent death of a houseman and look into bullying among healthcare workers but also into all contributing stress factors in the healthcare system, the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) said.

“This task force should look into the whole training system and other causes of stress related to work, which is not only seen among the house officers but also at other senior levels,” MMA president Dr Koh Kar Chai said in a statement today.
