Abstract:

Bullying affects staff, patients and families. This presentation will address bullying within the Midwifery field, what it is and why it is a problem. We will discuss how bullying is related to culture, and why attempts to change culture often fail. Work to try to shape a new response to bullying must include an awareness of culture, but more importantly, efforts to reduce bullying should follow a Person Centered Approached (PCA). We will discuss what PAC approaches look like, their dynamics and potency.
