Old Government Building LT (GBLT3)

This seminar presents the key findings of a qualitative study on bullying in the general practice workforce.

The research explores how bullying manifests itself in the workforce, the impacts of this behaviour, and some of the quirks of general practice which may contribute to bullying. The seminar will also cover some of the potential solutions to bullying—in particular the need for training, more support, and clearer pathways for those who are subjected to or accused of bullying.
