ISMP Survey on Disrespectful Behavior in Healthcare

Please tell us about your experiences with disrespectful behavior in your workplace. For the purposes of this survey, disrespectful behavior is defined as: any overt or covert interaction (or lack of interaction) between healthcare professionals that may result in either an intended or unintended reluctance to speak up about concerns, question patient care, or share an opinion on a subject. Examples can be found in Table 1 below. We estimate that it will take you 15 minutes to complete the survey. Please submit your responses by November 19, 2021.
