Have You Been Mistreated or Have You Witnessed Mistreatment?


Learners at the Faculty of Dentistry at UBC can report events that they have either experienced or witnessed in the learning environment or community, which they believe constitute mistreatment, or were contrary to UBC policies; including the FOD Professional Standards, or the UBC Respectful Workplace Guidelines.

If you are subject to mistreatment, or witness mistreatment in the learning environment:

  1. Stay calm and if possible tell the person to stop the behaviour. If you are a witness to mistreatment support the learner who is being mistreated and if appropriate confront the behaviour.

  2. Leave the situation if you or others are concerned about safety. If necessary call security or 911.

  3. Talk to someone you trust. This will help you decide what you wish to do next.

  4. Document what happened from your perspective in as much detail as possible.

  5. Report your experience through the online reporting tool. If you prefer, you may contact any faculty member within the Faculty of Dentistry.
