#4   minimise unintended disrespect by remaining composed when frustrated or stressed.


2. Promote diversity and well-being

#5   enquire about and show concern for S&Ts’ well-being.

#6   demonstrate respect for our S&Ts’ age, gender, cultural values and beliefs.

#7   treat everyone equally (rectify my biases) when evaluating S&Ts and considering their advice.

#8   support S&Ts if others are observed to behave disrespectfully toward them.


3. Ensure patients and staff are safe
