It was revealed that female surgeons in England were ly hared, aulted and in some cases by their colleagues.
A survey of NHS staff found female surgeons saying they had been ly hared, aulted and, in some cases, by colleagues.
Approximately two-thirds of the female surgeons who participated in the research said that they had been subjected to harment in the last 5 years, and one-third said that they had been ly aulted by their colleagues.
The authors of the study also noted that female trainees were being abused by senior male surgeons and this was already occurring in NHS hospitals.
The Royal College of Surgeons of England said the findings were “truly shocking”.
The research, conducted by the University of Exeter, the University of Surrey and the Misconduct in Surgery Working Group, was shared exclusively with the BBC.
63 PERCENT OF WOMEN WERE EXPOSED TO HARMENT
On the other hand, in a new study to be published in the British Journal of Surgery, male and female surgeons registered in the country were invited to participate in the research anonymously. In the survey to which 1,434 people responded, half of these people were women.
According to the prominent findings of the said study, 63 percent of women were subjected to harment by their colleagues, 30 percent were ly aulted by a colleague and at least 11 cases of were reported.
Although the research revealed that men (24 percent) were also exposed to some of these behaviors, it was concluded that male and female surgeons “experience different realities.”
A second study, titled “Breaking the Silence: Addressing Misconduct in Healthcare,” also makes recommendations about what needs to change in the industry.
The two studies in question suggested that the proportion of female surgeons was relatively low (about 28 percent), that surgery was highly hierarchical and provided significant power to some men, all combined with the high-stress environment of surgery. (AA)
