RCN stewards know from their experience that nurses, health care support workers and nursing students are working under difficult circumstances. These workshops are designed to help RCN stewards support members even more effectively during these often stressful times.
Topics to be covered will be:
understanding how to raise concerns at work and identify issues which would fall under specific whistleblowing legislation
a legal refresher looking at how stewards can support individual members and how they can work collaboratively with employers to ensure their own workplaces are free of discrimination
overview of practical ways reps can support members who may be experiencing bullying at work
For further information, please contact Joanne Noble, Learning & Development and Membership Administrator, by telephone on 0131 662 6165 or email by at email@example.com
As an RCN rep, you need to be aware of the RCN guidance for members on raising concerns. You should use this guidance in addition to the employer's policy on raising concerns when members seek your advice.
