Bullying can compromise patients’ safety. Lorna Powell suggests ways to reduce its incidence in healthcare

Bullying affects up to half of people in the United Kingdom at some point during their working lives and is common among healthcare employees.[1] [2] Doctors are no exception, and it is a problem faced in particular by many medical students and newly qualified doctors in the UK and internationally.[3] [4] When the British Medical Association asked a group of students if they had ever been the victim of bullying, intimidation, or discrimination while at medical school, more than a third of those questioned felt they had experienced such behaviour during their training.[1]
