Tweet Facebook Mail Doctors are increasingly the target of verbal and physical aggression from colleagues and patients' relatives, as well as from patients, a new study has found.The survey of almost 9500 Australian GPs, specialists, hospital-based doctors and specialists in training found about 70 per cent had experienced verbal or written aggression and 32 per cent were subjected to physical aggression in the previous year.Patients were the most common aggressors, followed by their relatives and carers and co-workers, according to the study by doctoral scholar Danny Hill, from Monash University's department of epidemiology and preventive medicine.Hospital-based younger doctors and specialists in training were twice as likely to be targets of aggression than GPs or specialists, the research found.Mr Hill said it was surprising that doctors felt aggression from patients' relatives almost as often as from patients.A significant number of young doctors were also coming under attack from their co-workers, Mr Hill said.Almost half of the male and female hospital-based doctors and specialists in training surveyed said they had experienced aggression, either verbal or written, from co-workers.RelatedCoronavirus: Victoria to lockdown COVID-19 hotspots amid state's outbreak spikePlanes diverted, roads watched,
