Sexual Harassment of Nurses, NPs, and PAs: Report 2018

June 27, 2018

Medscape's Sexual Harassment of Nurses, NPs, and PAs: Report 2018 shows results from more than 6200 physicians and clinicians in the United States. We asked respondents about specific harassing behavior they have experienced or witnessed, where it occurred, how they responded, and how it affected them. We also asked whether they had been accused of sexual harassment. Our comprehensive report describes the current state of sexual misconduct in the healthcare realm by asking about instances occurring within the past 3 years, as opposed to instances of harassment over one's entire career.

Individuals have their own perceptions about what defines sexual harassment or abuse. To make sure that respondents are all on the same page about definitions, we asked about specific behaviors.
