2:30 PM Sexual Harassment and Assault of Nurses by Patients: Why Does it Happen and What Can We Do as a Workforce to Prevent it?

Nursing remains the most female dominated profession in the world with females accounting for approximately 90% of the workforce, internationally and domestically. Due to a number of factors, incidences of abuse are unlikely to be reported in a clinical environment and as a result, the nursing workforce continues to be subjected to physically and psychologically damaging behaviours. Tammie will discuss factors relating to sex-based harassment and assault in nursing and how we can safety-proof our workforce and workplaces.

Learn how to:
  • Identify behaviors and actions that constitute sexual harassment and assault
  • Support staff to lodge formal reporting, which is imperative for data collection and policy change as proof as impact on workforce
  • Develop a ‘safety’ toolkit for de-escalating and removing oneself from a situation where sex-based harassment is being experienced
