MANAGING BULLYING AND UNDERMINING
This guide has been issued by the Professional Support Unit at Health Education England in London. We hope it will be useful for Directors of Medical Education (DMEs), Training Programme Directors (TPDs) and other medical educators and managers in London. Although it has been written for use in London and points to resources currently available here, educators elsewhere in the UK may also find it helpful as a general guide to good practice.
The aims of the guide are:
- To set out the principles of good practice in addressing these problems.
- To describe the resources and strategies available
The Professional Support Unit (PSU) can offer support to trainees who have experienced significant bullying, harassment or undermining. Advice and help is also available for both trainees and trainers from Deputy Postgraduate Deans, Heads of Schools, GP Associate Deans and Foundation School Directors and from other sources listed in this guide.
