Charlotte Chambers, Association of Salaried Medical Specialists, discusses research findings

This seminar presents findings on the prevalence of bullying amongst senior doctors and dentists of different specialties working in New Zealand’s public health system. The research explores correlates of experiencing negative behaviours, including medical specialty, gender and ethnicity as well as perceived levels of workplace demands and support from peers and non-clinical managers. Finally, there will be a discussion on the nature and extent of barriers to formally reporting bullying behaviour as well as the consequences of bullying on the professional and personal lives of respondents.
