This module has been developed by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and shared with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) to support an ongoing commitment in promoting appropriate behaviours in surgical practice and training.

The importance of improving a work environment to one that is psychologically safe for both clinicians and patients will ultimately result in safer care for patients, better standards of surgical training and service provision.
