Sexual Harassment in Healthcare

Sexual harassment in the workplace has become a national concern, and healthcare workplaces are not immune from the problem. A survey of internal medicine residents by the New England Journal of Medicine reported 79% of the women and 22% of the men felt they had experienced sexual harassment during their medical training. Other surveys have shown very similar results.

This program will discuss what sexual harassment is and how to recognize it in the workplace, the laws that address it, steps a facility must make to prevent it, and a series of steps you can take to deal with acts of harassment in your own working life.

Anyone, male or female, may encounter sexual harassment in a healthcare setting and it is important to understand what it is and how to deal with it.
