There are a number of issues that can affect the safety of our Fellows and trainees in the workplace. We have a role in exposing these issues and helping reduce their prevalence.
Discrimination, Bullying and Sexual Harassment (DBSH) – Instances of DBSH have a significant influence on the wellbeing of our Fellows and trainees, often disrupting the enjoyment and quality of their work. We are committed to investigating DBSH in our profession, addressing instances and bringing about meaningful cultural change.
Alcohol Harm in the ED (AHED) – Emergency departments (EDs) in Australia and New Zealand are at the forefront of dealing with the harmful effects of alcohol consumption. Alcohol-related presentations to EDs have a significant effect on other patients, workforce morale, and to the functioning of the ED. We seek to play an active role in reducing the harm AHED causes.
