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
