Introducing our new Safety & Security Framework
CRANAplus recently released a new safety and security framework outlining its three areas of commitment to the safety and security of remote health professionals. We have also published new and revised resources for health professionals and organisations, which are designed to promote safety and security in remote health workplaces, writes CRANAplus Professional Officer, Melanie Avion.
We recently reviewed how we advocate for and provide professional support and resources to the remote health workforce, who have expressed ongoing concerns for their safety and security.
The outcome is the CRANAplus Safety and Security Framework for Rural and Remote Health Professionals, which describes our three areas of commitment to safety and security. The framework webpage links remote health professionals and health services to resources under each of these three categories.
We have designed this framework to support rural and remote health professionals, services, and organisations to actively improve safety and security outcomes and, in turn, contribute to community health and workforce sustainability.
A range of extensively peer-reviewed, consolidated and targeted resources have been created or updated as part of the development of this framework.
Two factsheets are available, one offering guidance for employers, managers and recruiting agencies, the other for health professionals.
Additionally, workplace posters with the messages ‘everyone has a right to safety’ and ‘health care staff deserve respect’ are available to download, print and display.
CRANAplus is also pleased to launch its new Safety and Security for Remote Health Professionals reflective module.
This will assist you in finding information, support, and resources as you transition to remote practice, or help you develop your safety and security awareness if you are already experienced working in a remote or isolated setting.
We invite you to explore the framework, use the resources in your health service and complete the free Safety and Security of Remote Health Professionals reflective module as part of your CPD plan.
