UAV: Unite Against Violence

UAV (Unite Against Violence)

A Public Interest Initiative By PlexusMD

To understand the prevalence of violence against doctors & the form of violence the medical fraternity has to deal with, we conducted a nationwide survey called ‘UAV : Unite Against Violence’. Over 5,000 medical professionals & students actively and voluntarily participated in the survey & it led to highly insightful findings.

Did you know that on an average 1 out of 3 doctors have personally faced an incident of violence?

Violence against doctors in India, is indeed a matter of grave concern, almost 49% of these incidents are simply ignored & about 50% of the doctors who reported having personally faced an incident, encountered it at a government hospital. The ‘UAV: Unite Against Violence’ report highlights such instances & issues that doctors face in the line of duty. Change is always heralded by awareness. Spread the message to eradicate violence against doctors and to create a safer work environment for medical practitioners.

Also, we believe your safety is paramount & as we really care for you, we have a special gift just for you - a ‘Safe Practice Kit’ to keep you safe from violence and litigation. The kit contains clinic posters (about the ​Medicare Act in ​different state​s)​, top 30 medicolegal tips ​every doctor must know ​and a ​collection of 127 consent forms​ shared by doctors across the country.

Download, print and use in your daily practice. Be safe.
