Aggression in Australian health care workplaces - trends, consequences and remedies

The candidate will be able to use workplace aggression data from the Wave 11 (2018-19) Medicine in Australia: Balancing Employment and Life (MABEL) survey, data and published findings from the Workplace Aggression Experiences of Victorian Nurses and Midwives survey, as well as data and published findings from the Wave 3 (2010-11) MABEL survey. The candidate will also be able to review other available research, particularly as it relates to the prevention and minimisation of workplace aggression in health care settings. In examining trends and consequences for Australian health professionals, the candidate will be able to investigate the extent to which policy makers, legislators and health leaders have the knowledge, commitment and capacity to act on the need to remediate this significant work health and safety and public health concern. On the basis of this research, the candidate will be able to make recommendations to guide work health and safety and public health policy to support the health and well-being of the Australian health care workforce.
