Safety awareness among junior psychiatrists and provisions for their safety in the workplace

  • Helen Chubb (a1)
Abstract

Violence in the workplace is of great concern to trainee psychiatrists. A questionnaire was devised to assess knowledge of safety Issues, and precautions available, among junior doctors. The results, which revealed gaps in provision of safety training and facilities in this area, have been forwarded to the relevant directorates with a view to setting standards suitable for audit review.
