TACKLING SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION

The AMA (WA) and the WA Department of Health believe there is no place in the medical profession for sexual harassment. Together, we are committed to a zero tolerance policy towards sexual harassment, and will continue to play a role in tackling this issue.

We are also fully committed to supporting the cultural and attitudinal changes that need to occur in the medical profession. We know that the will and determination to improve the profession in this regard exists.

As an initial step towards positive change and a zero tolerance approach towards sexual harassment, the AMA (WA), in collaboration with the WA Department of Health, has created a resource outlining what sexual harassment is and what you can do to recognise, act, and if necessary report.
