Dear Members and Trainees,

Building Respect, Improving Patient Safety: An Action Plan on discrimination, bullying and sexual harassment (link to RACS website)

Today, RACS published an action plan designed to promote respect, counter discrimination, bullying and sexual harassment in the practice of surgery, and improve patient safety.

The action plan is the College’s response to findings that nearly 50% of Fellows, Trainees and International Medical Graduates had experienced discrimination, bullying or sexual harassment.

ANZSCTS fully supports RACS’s position and encourages all Members to review the action plan.

Kind Regards,
ANZSCTS President
Paul Bannon
