We all deserve respect: Downloadable sign for doctors’ offices now available

December 3, 2021

Doctors of BC, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia, the Physician Health Program, and the Canadian Medical Protective Association are united in their concern for the safety of BC doctors and their staff, especially during the currently tense environment caused by the pandemic. In an effort to support doctors and remind BC patients that we all deserve respect, the group partnered in order to create a downloadable sign for doctors to display in their offices. The sign’s purpose is to remind patients that verbally abusive or aggressive behaviour is not acceptable and that anyone demonstrating this behaviour may be asked to leave. 

Doctors of BC members can also find a webinar recording and tip sheet of a recent Human Safety Optimization webinar, created by Business Pathways, with more information on how doctors can protect themselves from online and physical attacks.
