Workplace Violence Rampant in Healthcare

Workplace Violence Rampant in Healthcare

Workplace violence against healthcare workers is rampant, but solutions remain unclear, largely as a result of underrecognition and underreporting of the problem and poor-quality research, according to a review article published in the April 28 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The article stems from the tragic death of a surgeon at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, in January 2015. The surgeon was shot and killed by the son of one of his patients, who had died.

Dear Rebecca,

I've just come from a press conference with the Prime Minister. He called family violence in Australia a national disgrace.

And then he announced a $100 million funding package to help address this epidemic. The package aims to improve frontline support and services, leverage innovative technologies to keep women safe, and provide education resources to help change community attitudes.

Public Speaking: How is this Strategy?

Public Speaking: How is this Strategy?

The Idea Cloud recently held a sold out lunch time learning session for Public Speaking tailored specifically to professional services. One participant asked why strategists would have Public Speaking as a flagship programme? 

The answer is simple, there is complexity in public speaking that when strategy is applied, it is possible to see each of the component parts: breathing, eye contact, body language, facial expressions, posture… and the list goes on.

The Merry Christmas Equation

Why Emailing Outside of Work Hours Is Bad For You

Email was supposed to free up time in workplace communications: Send some in lieu of an in-person meeting! Work remotely! Take your time crafting one instead of blurting out something stupid! But now that everyone is so instantly reachable, work email has slipped its tentacles into our off-the-clock lives, subtly demanding evening responses and extending the workday indefinitely.

Now, 52% of Americans check their e-mail before and after work, even when they take a sick day; ignoring email can seem more stressful than dashing off a quick response.
