Workplace bullying (WPB) has been labeled a major global healthcare problem by the World Health Organization. Literature has shown the negative impact WPB has on a healthcare provider’s mental health, physical well-being, and job performance. Moreover, these behaviors have a significant impact on an employer’s economic loss and most importantly is detrimental to patient care. Educational competencies include prevention, identification of bullying behaviors, and integration of best practices to promote a healthy workplace. Current gaps include a lack of knowledge in identifying WPB behaviors, awareness on the prevalence of WPB in healthcare, as well as the proper implementation of policies and procedures to protect targets of WPB in healthcare settings. This presentation will assist healthcare professionals in promoting a safe workplace environment which will enhance patient care and outcomes.
