Course Content

Articulating not only what is bullying but responding to both the reality and the perception of bullying is a real issue.  Not every disciplinary comment is bullying and developing the emotional resilience to deal with the social-cultural nursing habits of practice is important.

Genuine bullying is destructive and can have career destroying effects.  Recognising and preventing bullying is a professional obligation.
