Psychological Hazards in Healthcare

Psychological Hazards in Healthcare Conference

16 August 2019

Due to popular demand the Psychological Hazards in Healthcare Conference in 2019 will be kicked off with an interactive presentation by psychologist Anastasia Goussios on compassion fatigue. 

Psychological hazards at work have an impact on the mental and or emotional well-being of workers, which are impacted by organisational factors.  Outcomes of exposure to psychological hazards include but are not limited to stress, fatigue (physical and emotional), and other psychological and physical symptoms.

The nature of the work and healthcare environment can place unique pressure on the psychological health of those in the workplace, with risks including:

•    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 or harassment within the workplace

•    organisational culture, where caring for others is prioritised above caring for the carers

•    poor communication or lack of appropriate work support systems
