Abstract

Background
Workplace bullying is a persistent problem in the NHS with negative implications for individuals, teams, and organisations. Bullying is a complex phenomenon and there is a lack of evidence on the best approaches to manage the problem.

Aims
Research questions

What is known about the occurrence, causes, consequences and management of bullying and inappropriate behaviour in the workplace?

Objectives
Summarise the reported prevalence of workplace bullying and inappropriate behaviour.

Summarise the empirical evidence on the causes and consequences of workplace bullying and inappropriate behaviour.

Describe any theoretical explanations of the causes and consequences of workplace bullying and inappropriate behaviour.

Synthesise evidence on the preventative and management interventions that address workplace bullying interventions and inappropriate behaviour.

Methods
To fulfil a realist synthesis approach the study was designed across four interrelated component parts:

Part 1: A narrative review of the prevalence, causes and consequences of workplace bullying
Part 2: A systematic literature search and realist review of workplace bullying interventions
Part 3: Consultation with international bullying experts and practitioners
Part 4: Identification of case studies and examples of good practice
