New app helps remote health workers respond to bullying

Bullying is not just limited to the school playground – it can occur wherever people work together in all types of workplaces including the health care sector.

A new bullying app has been designed to help nurses and allied health care professionals working in remote locations to identify bullying and outlines when they should seek help.

CRANAplus Bush Support Services (BSS), the peak body for remote health practitioners, recently launched a unique, free app for iPhone and android, to help equip remote health care professionals to combat bullying.

The BSS bullying app assists health professionals working in a remote location, away from normal support channels such as family and friends.

The app provides information on how to prevent and respond to bullying, and features resources and contacts.

The app provides information such as:

  • how to identify bullying in a remote health workplace
  • understanding the process in preventing and responding to bullying
  • identifying symptoms associated with bullying and when to seek help
  • who to contact and readily-available resources.
