Event description

Description

The proven, the practical and the personal; work impacts on psychological health, is a full-day conference presented by the ANMF (Vic Branch) on Friday 12 May 2017.

Psychological hazards at work have an impact on the mental and/or emotional wellbeing of workers, and are impacted by organisational factors. Outcomes of exposure to psychological hazards include but aren’t limited to stress, post-traumatic stress, fatigue (physical and emotional), and other physical symptoms.

The nature of the healthcare environment and work can place unique pressure on the psychological health of those in the workplace. Risks can include:

  • a heavy workload (including overtime) that impacts work-life balance
  • fast paced work
  • prolonged and repeated exposure to trauma
  • exposure to occupational violence and aggression
  • entrenched bullying within the workplace
  • where the culture of the organisation, cares more for others than caring for the carers
  • poor communication or lack of appropriate work support systems
  • fatigue
