Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
This workshop is for those who have responsibility for administering medication in acute, residential or home settings. It will explore the over arching policies and supporting legal documents which safeguard the patient and professional. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss case studies and learn from situations where there was poor medicine management.
The workshop will highlight the five rights of medicine management and basic drug calculations.
