MDU journal, autumn 2021

How do we address incidents of violence against doctors and dealing with challenging patients?

Working in healthcare will always be challenging, and doctors expect long hours and accept the reality of limited resources. What they don't expect - or deserve - is to be met with aggression and violence for simply doing their job.

In the latest MDU journal, Dr Michael Devlin explores the facts and figures behind the sad reality of healthcare workers facing violence in the course of their work.

Also in this issue:
