New sexual harassment elearning resource

Turas Learn has a new elearning module on sexual harassment. The resource, hosted in the Equality and Diversity Zone, will help support line managers across the NHS and social care in Scotland to:

  • identify sexual harassment,
  • understand wider gender inequalities,
  • support fellow colleagues who have experienced sexual misconduct, and
  • highlight relevant policies and good practice that can be used in their own working lives.

Scottish charity Close the Gap developed the module through its Equally Safe at Work programme. NHS Education for Scotland (NES) gave input to tailor the resource to a health and social care audience.

On the same topic - last week’s NES Annual Virtual Conference hosted the workshop: Tackling Sexual Harassment in Healthcare. The workshop, which was aimed at multiprofessional audiences featured short presentations from key workstreams. Topics included existing policies and structures, education and changing the culture, and support.

NES colleagues Alastair Murray, Deputy Lead Dean Director, Dr Greg Jones, Associate Postgraduate Dean for Professional Support Unit, and Adam Watson, Senior Solicitor - Employment Team, NHS Scotland Central Legal Office, delivered the workshop.

A recording of ‘Tackling Sexual Harassment in Healthcare’ will be available shortly for anyone interested.
