Every Day’s A Challenge

Australian Workers Film Guide


Referencing the 2004 Victorian Taskforce on Violence In Nursing, this video highlights the issue of occupational violence against health care workers. Experts and health care workers underscore the constant threat of violence in the workplace, with nurses coming in second in terms of compensation claims, ahead of even police officers.

Nurses working in the emergency and mental health sectors suffer the most violence, with most witnessing physical and verbal abuse in the workplace.  While healthcare workers tend tolerate higher levels of aggression given their caregiver roles, this can lead to compassion fatigue. The video explores the Taskforces recommendations, which includes co-operation with Victoria Police to ensure the safety of health care workers. The video features interviews with experts and healthcare professionals and shows workers in caregiving settings.
