Leading a Safe and Ethical Workplace Culture in Health 2016
On 12 July 2016, as part of the Victorian Government's commitment to build a positive workplace culture in healthcare services, Minister for Health the Hon. Jill Hennessy MP opened the Leading a Safe and Ethical Workplace Culture in Health forum. The forum was well received, with around 200 people attending in person, plus many watching the live webcast on the day.
All board members of public hospitals (including multi-purpose services), public healthcare services and other health boards (such as Forensicare and Ambulance Victoria) attended the one-day event, where experts explored how boards can lead the way on improving the culture in their organisations.
This forum built on the department's anti-bullying strategy, which outlines actions necessary to prevent, manage and respond to inappropriate behaviour in our public healthcare system.
The forum presentations are available below. For more information contact the department's Health Service Governance Unit.
