I have been all over the net and medline with little result.

Am looking for RECENT (last 2-3 years) of statistics on the number of impaired health professionals - physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists - and the number of those seeking treatment.  Statistics can be national, regional, state.

Any pointers to sources would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.
