Workplace aggression research findings to be revealed
Research findings of a survey of ANMF (Vic Branch) members’ experiences of workplace aggression will be presented at our Occupational Health and Safety Conference on 16 November.
Dr Louisa Lam, Deputy Dean at the School of Nursing and Healthcare Professions at Federation University Australia, will present the findings of the Workplace Aggression Experiences in Nursing and Midwifery Study she conducted with her colleague, Associate Professor Danny Hill, with the support of ANMF.
Conference speakers include:
- Dr Lana Cormie, wife of Charlie Howkins and Dave Brownlee, father of Jack Brownlee, will speak from a personal perspective about occupational health and safety. Their loved ones, Charlie and Jack, died after a trench collapsed on a construction site in Ballarat on 21 March 2018.
- Dr Paul Sutton, OHS Lead Organiser, Victorian Trades Hall Council, on the union campaign for new industrial manslaughter laws.
The healthcare environment as a workplace can create conflicting priorities and work demands on nurses, midwives and personal carers. But nurses, midwives and carers should not need to choose between prioritising patient or staff safety if appropriate systems are in place.
The ANMF Occupational Health and Safety Conference attracts up to six hours of CPD required by the NMBA for registration renewal.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear about the latest research and best practice in healthcare-related occupational health and safety. It’s also a great opportunity to connect with other nurses, midwives and carers.
